We're hard at work finally, putting the new site look up, and making sure all the content is fresh and newly updated. Please bear with us over the next week or two if you find something missing or a broken link or two. We are working hard to get caught up so if something doesn't work right today, please check back tomorrow!
If you're looking around for a few of the sections we had before, I'm sorry to say that some of them are just plain gone. I decided it was time to narrow the focus of the site a bit to make sure we can really do a good job of covering the things we kept around. We were getting a little thin before, trying to offer something for everyone. We've got a new sitemap here though, so you can see all the sections.
In the state of Montana, it isn't hard to find great destinations on the water, but Flathead Lake is one of the really special bodies of water here. It's the largest freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River, at 28 miles long and 15 miles wide, or if you want to do the math, that's 188 square miles of lake. Nestled at near the Swan and Mission mountain ranges, the lake is lined with timber.
This lake is a fishermans paradise, the Lake Trout grow big and plentiful here. In fact, there is an annual event, Mack Days, that draws fishermen from all over in hopes of landing not only some great Trout, but also a portion of the thousands of dollars in prizes that are given away each year. The 2009 even is scheduled to run from March 13th to April 26th, and this year there is over $45,000 in cash and prizes ready to be handed out. If you like to fish for Lake Trout, you should certainly give this event a look.
If you do plan to fish on Flathead, you should be aware that the southern half of the lake is within the boundaries of the Flathead Indian Reservation, so if you're going to fish the south half, you'll need a tribal fishing permit in addition to your normal Montana State fishing license.
