Trout Creek

Trout Creek Montana

Listing Type: Creek
City: Trout Creek Montana
Region: Glacier Country

Trout Creek flows through a bushy, timbered, flat-bottomed canyon. It is easily fished for fair catches of 10- to 12-inch rainbow and cutthroat trout. Beaver ponds 3 miles above the mouth may also offer some brook trout.

North Fork Trout Creek: This small, seldom-fished stream is in heavily timbered country at the headwaters of Trout Creek. Fair fishing for cutthroat can be found. An old jeep trail parallels the stream for 2 miles, but vehicles are no longer allowed.

West Fork Trout Creek: This stream is accessible by a trial from the end of the Trout Creek Road, offering about 5 miles of good fishing. Brook and cutthroat trout ranging from 8 to 13 inches may be found. There are camping spots along this trail, and the area offers opportunities for wildlife sightings.

Directions: Follow the County road west of Trout creek until crossing a small bridge, about 1 mile. Turn left and follow for 2 miles, then turn right onto a logging road that follows the creek for 6 miles to the junction of the east and west forks.
