Fishing may be enjoyed along the Whitefish River in northwest Montana. It is 24 miles long with its head at Whitefish Lake and juncture with the Stillwater River a mile east of Kalispell, Montana. It is accessible by good county roads all the way. It is fished mostly from shore for good early season catches of cutthroat, and late season kokanee snagging. There is also a large population of trash fish here. Day use only. Undeveloped site.
The Whitefish River is a good floating stream for ducks.
Directions: Whitefish River is located 9 miles north of Kalispell on Whitefish Stage Road, then east on Hodgson Road.
