Montana's fishery resources and fishing opportunities
From cold water to warm water, big prairie rivers to high mountain lakes and fly-fishing to trolling, Montana offers angling opportunities for all to enjoy. Whether you’re seeking solitude, fish for the supper table or the trophy of a lifetime, you can find it here.
Many of these opportunities can be attributed to the quality of the fisheries habitat in Montana. Still, there are numerous challenges facing Montana's fisheries including climate change, habitat alteration and dewatering of streams. FWP is tasked with managing the state's fishery resources and addressing these challenges.
