Located in the northwest corner of Missoula County, Lindbergh Lake is a rather narrow, long, summer resort lake. Lindbergh Lake, located near the divide between the Swan and Clearwater drainages, is an excellent jumping-off point for nearby high mountain lakes. Crystal, Turquoise, and Glacier Lakes are all within an easy day’s hike from Lindbergh Lake. Because of limited spawning areas and low basic productivity due to low temperatures and lack of food sources, this is not an outstanding angling location, but it is still a very scenic and remote spot. FWP annually plants the lake with 30,000 4- to 6-inch cutthroat trout and about 100,000 kokanee salmon, but there just isn’t enough food to sustain a large fish population, and the lake is too remote for more intensive management. All that aside, the lake does provide good summer fishing for 12-inch cutthroat trout. In addition, kokanee salmon provide plenty of challenge to any angler.
