Tiber Reservoir is not set to be the next destination spot for anglers
on a Montana fly fishing trip. Located out in the middle of the prairie
in north central Montana, Tiber Reservoir, formed by the Tiber Dam on
River, is quite isolated. Despite its remote location, Tiber Reservoir
sees a fair amount of use from the local population, with local being
considered anywhere within a hundred mile radius. During a nice summer
weekend, it is not uncommon to see dozens of power boats and water-skiers
out aimlessly cruising the lake.
For fly fishing, Tiber Reservoir is not highly recommended. Its main
fish consist of northern pike, walleye, perch and catfish. Some brown
trout and whitefish can also be found, generally around the inlet of
the Marias River. The lake itself has quite turbid water, furthering
hindering fly fishing.
Tiber Reservoir is quite large and is often very windy.
As a result, a motor boat of one kind of another is really needed to
adequately fish the lake.
Access to Tiber Reservoir is excellent. Several designated access sites
exist around Tiber Dam. It is also very easy to travel away from the
designated access sites along many parts of the lake boundary.
Its along way to anywhere from Tiber Reservoir, so anyone venturing
out to Tiber Reservoir should plan on bringing their RV or tent. Several
camping areas around Tiber Dam exist that provide decent facilities.
