The Middle Fork of the Flathead enjoys the title of Montana’s “Wildest River,” due to its careening whitewater path through the Bob Marshall Wilderness, the Great Bear Wilderness and along the southwest border of Glacier National Park to its confluence with the North Fork of the Flathead. The 73-mile course of the Middle Fork plays host to 27 miles of ‘Wild and Scenic’ designated water with a healthy population of westslope cutthroat and a burgeoning population of rainbow trout. Types of Fish: Rainbow, Bull, and Westslope Cutthroat Trout.
