The Middle Fork of the Flathead River makes up the southern boundary of Glacier National Park, offering tranquility amidst spectacular scenery. All half-day and full-day trips offer a variety of class two and three rapids in the John Stevens Canyon. The intermediate rapids are fun and splashy without being dangerous and require no experience. Popular activities include whitewater, scenic float and dinner trips. Whether it's your first time or you're an old pro; whether you want to cast a fly or troll for mackinaw, the Flathead Valley is the place to catch your "perfect fish." Record size lake trout , rainbow trout, large mouth bass and other fish species found in the many lakes and rivers
provide the serious angler with days of enjoyment. The Flahead Adventure Company can arrange half-day and full-day guided trips that include all equipment for both lake fishing and fly-fishing. The whitefish area is home to over 1500 lakes in a 50-mile radius, including the 3,350-acre Whitefish Lake and Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi. The North Fork and main stem of the Flathead River is listed as blue-ribbon trout rivers. Streams open the third Saturday in May through November 30. Some streams have extended whitefish and catch-and-release fishing for trout from December through the third Saturday in May. Lakes are open the entire year, with some exceptions. Which makes for great winter ice fishing.
