North America's Top 10 Trout-Fishing Towns: Missoula, Montana

-Forbes August 2009

With three rivers to choose from - the Blackfoot, Bitterroot, and the Clark Fork of the Columbia - as well as Rock Creek, famous for its blue ribbon fishing, you have an almost endless selection of stretches to explore. The angling is so good here, that Forbes Magazine named Missoula one of North America's top ten trout fishing towns.

If lake fishing is more your speed, you'll find plenty of options here as well. Flathead Lake, Frenchtown Pond State Park, Georgetown Lake, Placid Lake State Park, Seeley Lake and Salmon Lake State Park all welcome you to fish their waters.
