Montana Ice Fishing

Some might ask the question, what is the appeal of ice fishing? For the avid ice fisherman, the list of likes is quite long. Gone are the days of fish spearing in frigid temperatures wearing fur pelts and shoes. Thanks to technological advancements in clothing, gear and ice drilling equipment, ice fishing has gone from a solitary experience as a means for hunting food to an incredible journey into the wild of the world. Ice fishing is a sport filled with fish catching, fellowship, sometimes whiskey and fabulous views of mountain snows and scenic landscapes. And as ice fishing has gained in popularity, Montana has become the leader for ice fishing opportunities. It is truly a magical mecca of ice fishing that calls to the most adventurous outdoorsman.

The Ultimate Ice Fishing Experience

When ice fishing began, one might use an axe to chop out a hole in the ice to cast one line, hoping to snag a slow moving fresh fish. Using newer techniques and gear, catching fish is almost as much the point to ice fishing as is enjoying the great outdoors while reflecting on life and the love of the wilderness with your friends and family. Yellow Perch, Kokanee Salmon, Crappie, Northern Pike, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, and Brook Trout are there for the taking at any of the most desirable ice fishing spots in Montana. There is a romantic quality to ice fishing in the most beautiful state in the country. And one must embrace those qualities along with the elements to get the most out of an ice fishing excursion.
