Georgetown Lake, which is the headwaters of Flint
Creek, has excellent fishing for rainbow trout and brook trout.
Lying in a serene setting to the north of the Anaconda-Pintlar
Wilderness, Georgetown Lake makes for a scenic fishing setting.
And at over 3000 acres, this fertile reservoir, combined with generous
stocking and strict possession limits, produces some hefty fish.
Georgetown Lake receives fairly heavy pressure, for both fishing and
pleasure boating. Access is easy to Georgetown Lake; with Montana Highway
1 following the lake on one side while a network of dirt roads follows
the lake on the other sides. Since the bulk of the lake lies in national
forest lands, an angler can shore fish from may locations. Several boat
ramps are also available allowing for easy boat access.
During the fall is the best time to fish for the large brook trout that
are found in Georgetown Lake. Rainbow trout can be taken all summer long,
