Take the family rainbow trout fishing in Montana at a place like Laurel Pond or catch cutthroat trout while fishing on Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park. Once you purchase your fishing license and learn the state fishing laws, there are literally thousands of miles of fishable streams and freshwater lakes for you to explore amidst the scenic mountain views.

Additional general information on fishing in Montana can be found on the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks website.
