Fishing for rainbow trout, brown trout, cutthroat trout and brook trout at Hebgen Lake in Montana.
Hebgen Lake, MT

Less than a 15-mile ride from West Yellowstone, MT is Hebgen Lake, a trout anglers' paradise. This 11,000-acre lake is an impoundment of the Madison River with over 65 miles of shoreline. Visitors tend to focus more on fishing here, and less on boating and other water sports. Fly fishing for big browns and rainbows is the primary draw, with the potential to catch a dream fish on every cast. Plenty of campgrounds and RV parks surround the lake as do boat launch ramps and marinas. The combination of scenic views and alluring fishing make this a favorite destination for a day of fishing or an extended family vacation. Ice fishing in winter is available once there is safe ice.
