Fishing Glacier National Park includes over 250 fishing locations from Waterton Lake to the Flathead River. This guide uncovers streams and lakes for Kokanee salmon, mountain and lake whitefish, arctic grayling, and trout--lake, brook, rainbow, and cutthroat. Novice as well as expert anglers will find that the trails and roads in Glacier lead to more than spectacular vistas--many of them lead to great fishing sites.
