Fishing for cutthroat trout and brown trout at Earthquake Lake in Montana.
Earthquake Lake, MT

Created by an earthquake in 1959, Earthquake Lake is a 600-acre lake in the southwest part of the state, about 25 miles northwest of West Yellowstone. Rugged mountains surround about a dozen miles of shoreline, and the lake has standing timber in the water most everywhere. Dry fly fishing around these submerged trees is popular. A boat launch ramp and campgrounds are open to the public. Anglers willing to do a bit of walking/hiking can find unique and productive places to fish from the bank.
