The Erskine Fishing Access is located in Frenchtown on the west end of the Missoula Valley. The 700-acre public site is bordered by the Clark Fork of the Columbia River to the south and pastureland to the north. The floodplain contains islands and an adjoining U-shaped oxbow bend in the river. The 1 .5-mile fishing access trail follows the waterway as the river curves along the base of the mountains. The dog-friendly path leads through the lush riverside wetland with a rich complex of cottonwoods, ponderosa pines, aspen groves, willow bottoms, cattails, hawthorn thickets, and beaver ponds. The area is a haven for birds.
