Fishing and hunting are two simple words but they describe the passion of millions. Montana is a hunting and fishing paradise.
Hunt elk, whitetail or mule deer, bear or cougar in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, antelope on short-grass prairies, upland birds in the foothills and moose in the low bogs of our rugged mountains. When it comes to wildlife diversity and hunting opportunities, Montana has something to satisfy everyone.
The Historic Tamarack Lodge works directly with local guides enabling us to offer fishing trips and hunting packages to our guests. Ask us about our great rates for a once in a lifetime experience!
If 3 and 9 day hunting and fishing packages are a bit overwhelming, you can always take a guided “raft and fish” day or half day package, or just stay at the lodge and go fishing or hunting on your own schedule. We are surrounded by the National Forest and many people come simply to explore the area on their own.
The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks regulate and manage fishing and hunting throughout Montana. Licenses are available from their offices and at most local sporting good stores. Fishing and hunting licenses are not available from the Forest Service.
Nearby Hungry Horse Dam is located on the South Fork of the Flathead River about 15 miles south of the west entrance to Glacier National Park and 20 miles northeast of Kalispell, Montana . The reservoir is about 34 miles long and its 23,800 acres offers excellent opportunities for fishing, boating, water skiing and swimming. Available fish species are cutthroat trout, bull trout and whitefish. The surrounding mountains are popular big game hunting areas and several of the smaller tributaries have their headwaters in nearby alpine lakes. The area is managed by the Flathead National Forest.
