Guide To Fishing At Georgetown Lake
AKA: Georgetown Reservoir
A trout fishing paradise and a fly fisherman's dream, Georgetown Lake is a fertile, 2,800-acre lake providing excellent trout fishing for both quality and quantity. Ice fishing is popular in winter, and during the warmer months bait, spinners and flies are all successful techniques for trout and kokanee.
This fishery is very fertile with lots of cover for fish and bait so it tends to grow larger-than-average trout. Annual trout stockings further enhance the fish populations making this a great place to go trout fishing in the west-central part of the state. There is plenty of access to the 17 miles of shoreline via campgrounds, boat launches and public access areas scattered all around the lake. A couple marinas and boat rentals are available during the season. Canoes, kayaks, pleasure and fishing boats are welcome here, however check with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks for boating restrictions.
