Swan Lake is located in the Flathead National Forest in northwest Montana. It is about 20 miles long and a mile wide at the north end of the Swan Valley. The lake is a popular fishing and resort area. Swan Lake is popular among fishermen for its northern pike fishery, kokanee salmon and rainbow trout. The Clearwater River flows south through a 'chain of lakes' to the Blackfoot River near the Blackfoot Clearwater Game Range where several hundred head of elk and deer winter. Montana Highway 83 leads through this region linking several rural communities including Swan Lake, Condon & Seeley Lake. Scenic wildlife viewing areas can be accessed along Highway 83.
