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 the Marias 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.
