Famous for trophy pike, lake trout and walleye, Fort Peck Lake provides excellent fishing year round. The lake supports healthy populations of bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, trout, sunfish, perch, salmon, paddlefish, sauger and pike. Ice fishing in winter can be spectacular, due to relatively light fishing pressure. Major lake points and ledges near the river channel are ideal hangouts for quality fish, both in the warmer season and through the ice in winter. This 250,000-acre impoundment is located in the northeast part of the state, at Fort Peck. Campgrounds, parks and public access areas are scattered all around this giant fishery, which boasts over 1,500 miles of shoreline. Several marinas and boat launch ramps serve the boating public during the season.
