Fishing and hunting in the Flathead Valley

Fishing and hunting are two simple words but they describe the passion of millions.  Montana is a hunting and fishing paradise.

Hunt elk, whitetail or mule deer, bear or cougar in the Bob Marshall Wilderness, antelope on short-grass prairies, upland birds in the foothills and moose in the low bogs of our rugged mountains.   When it comes to wildlife diversity and hunting opportunities, Montana has something to satisfy everyone.

 

 

The Historic Tamarack Lodge works directly with local guides enabling us to offer fishing trips and hunting packages to our guests.  Ask us about our great rates for a once in a lifetime experience !

If 3 and 9 day hunting and fishing packages are a bit overwhelming, you can always take a guided “raft and fish” day or half day package, or just stay at the lodge and go fishing or hunting on your own schedule.  We are surrounded by the National Forest and many people come simply to explore the area on their own.

The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks regulate and manage fishing and hunting throughout Montana. Licenses are available from their offices and at most local sporting good stores. Fishing and hunting licenses are not available from the Forest Service. Buy your hunting and fishing licenses online at Online License Sales.

Nearby Hungry Horse Dam is located on the South Fork of the Flathead River about 15 miles south of the west entrance to Glacier National Park and 20 miles northeast of  Kalispell, Montana . The reservoir is about 34 miles long and its 23,800 acres offers excellent opportunities for fishing, boating, water skiing and swimming.  Available fish species are cutthroat trout, bull trout and whitefish.  The surrounding mountains are popular big game hunting areas and several of the smaller tributaries have their headwaters in nearby alpine lakes.  The area is managed by the Flathead National Forest.

Glacier National Park Summer Vacations

May 13th, 2013 by teresa

Blue sky against tall pines, long drawn out sunsets, a million and one stars – you will soon discover why they call Montana ‘Big Sky’ country! With summer temperatures possibly hitting 100 you will find the perfect opportunity to head off into the cool air of the mountains or to take a dip in the lakes and rivers. The beauty of Montana at the height of the season is unsurpassed and you will return from your travels with a photograph album that will become the envy of all your friends!

The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins offers, within a five-mile radius, an array of activities appealing to all ages and a wide range of interests. The Flathead National Forest right outside our back door provides miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking and ample opportunities for fishing and hunting. Nearby Kalispell, Whitefish and Bigfork have plenty of boutiques and antique shops and, in the summer months, there are ample opportunities for water sports whether touring the Flathead Lake, rafting on the rivers or shooting down the slides at the nearby Big Sky Water Park.

Of course, there is always Glacier National Park, only 8 miles away and open year round, its our main attraction and with good reason!  Visitors to Glacier National Park enjoy the park’s 1 million acres of lakes, sweeping valleys and glacier carved mountains. Glacier is 40 miles wide from east to west, and 50 miles long north to south. A complete suite of wildlife that includes wolves, grizzly bears, lynx and other natural predators sets it apart from nearly every other national park, a park so naturally beautiful it is known as the “Crown Jewel of the Continent.”

Mountain bikes and fishing equipment are available for rental from the lodge.

When you are done exploring for the day, try dinner at one of our many local restaurants, or cook on the grill at the lodge and enjoy a game of horseshoes or volleyball in our backyard. The Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins are famous for our evening campfires, hosted by our staff and often accompanied by local musicians.

Regardless of the weather, season, or activity there is always spectacular scenery. With Montana’s Rocky Mountains as your backdrop, the Historic Tamarack Lodge and Cabins will provide you with the perfect setting for your next family vacation, corporate retreat, or weekend getaway.
