Ice Fishing

High Alpine Fishing on Georgetown Lake


Hidden Gem

Try your hand at a storied local pastime

It’s never too cold to go fishing in Montana. In fact, when the ice freezes, you can enjoy ice fishing from the comfort of a hut. These small structures are fitted with chairs, a propane heater, blankets, hot beverages and toddies, as well as all the fishing gear you need. Enjoy new vistas from a high-mountain lake set against the Pintler, Sapphire and Flint ranges, while you fish for Rainbow trout, Brook trout and Kokanee salmon. While you’re waiting for the fish to bite, guides will employ sonar and fish cameras to see what’s going on under the ice.

  • Available after the first hard freeze until March 31

  • $375 for up to 4 people and $125 per additional guest

  • Activity subject to change due to weather conditions

  • All equipment provided

  • Guests are encouraged to wear warm clothes
