Spring Creek Fishing

If you would rather stay close to camp, Three Bears RV Park has Spring Creek running right through the backside of it. It is a good place to also go fly fishing, because of the slower flow rates and water clarity. The creek runs into the Flathead River and has some of the same fish that anglers love!

Flathead Lake Ice Fishing

The Flathead lake allows for Ice Fishing in the winter months. Although it doesn’t usually freeze completely, most of the bays and shorelines do freeze.  The lake has many whitefish and lake trout, with some yellow perch and cutthroat trout still around. If the lake is completely frozen, you can try Yellow Bay Point, Skidoo Bay, or Angel Point – Conrad Point. These spots should yield a good day of fishing. However, make sure to check on ice conditions as they are quick to change. Check out Flathead Lake Charters for more information on charters in the water. They have tours including half days and full days and even provide snacks, drinks, rods and reels, tackle and bait and life jackets for you and the whole family. Don’t miss the opportunity to experience ice fishing on the Flathead Lake.
