Fishing for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, lake trout and kokanee salmon at McDonald Lake in Montana.
McDonald Lake, MT

The cold, clear water of McDonald Lake is home to trout and salmon and an awesome place to spend a day. The scenery is spectacular and the fishing is too. This is a 6,800-acre lake in the northwest part of the state, in Glacier National Park. While there are no FWP access areas for fishing from the bank, the majority of the lake can be fished from shore when water levels are down a few feet. And there's 22 miles of shoreline to enjoy. This is the only lake in the park that allows boating
