Famous for its size, its mountain-ringed setting and the purity of its waters, Flathead Lake, Montana is a body of water like no other. Home to around 25 native and nonnative fish species, it is an angler’s paradise year-round and some of the more common ones you’ll find are lake trout, mountain whitefish, lake whitefish, yellow perch, and westslope cutthroat trout.
Surrounded by national forestland, the lake has a few communities along its shore and it also has several islands. The largest is Wild Horse Island, which is just off Big Arm Bay and encompasses 2,100 acres. A wildlife refuge – officially it is the Wild Horse Island State Park – it is still populated by a few wild horses as well as Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, mule deer, and several bird species, from songbirds to bald eagles.
