Fishing in NW Montana


A Able Fishing Charters and Tours offer a variety like no other outfitter in the area. We love to chase Lake Trout (Mackinaw) in Flathead Lake, but we also know and understand that the areas variety of fishing is worth sharing!

There are so many varieties of native fish and non-native fish in the valley. On Swan Lake we can fish for the federally protected native Bull Trout. Montana’s state fish, the native West slope Cutthroat Trout is available in almost every lake we can fish.

In addition, A Able Fishing Charters and Tours have the boats and equipment to help you fish for and catch many different species.

Northern Pike
Rainbow Trout
Brown Trout
Brook Trout
Kokanee Salmon
Lake Whitefish
Yellow Perch
Largemouth Bass
Smallmouth Bass
Crappie

We might troll, with downriggers or planer boards, cast with spinning or casting gear, or jig depending on the lake, the species and the weather!

Some people are obviously more experienced anglers than others, so we try and balance the skill level with the tactic used, with the goal of helping you catch fish.

We also understand that many people use our trips as an opportunity to learn to fish, or advance their skills and we will listen to your wishes and do what we can to ensure your expectations are met and we hope, exceeded.

On all trips, we supply all the tackle you will need, but on any trips to the lakes other than Flathead, you are welcome to bring that favorite rod, or allow us to help you properly set up that new outfit!
