Covering 1,584 square miles of majestic mountains and icy glaciers, the mountainous wonders of Glacier National Park are viewed by over two million visitors a year. Unlike Yellowstone National Park, which is a Mecca for fly fishers from all around the country, Glacier National Park is not well known as a fishing destination. It does, however, offer some quality fishing in addition to its breathtaking scenery and world class hiking. While there are some stream fishing opportunities, Glacier also offers good fishing in over 50 lakes for those anglers who are willing to trek three to six miles or more into the interior lakes. Consider the fishing an added bonus to a scenic hike into the wilderness.
