Ennis Lake

Ennis Lake in Southern Montana
Photo Use Guidelines

Ennis Lake was formed by the erection of the Ennis Dam on the Madison River. The lake is quite shallow and can get very warm during the height of summer - resulting in some fish kill and limiting populations.

Despite that, Ennis Lake has some large rainbow and brown trout that can be found in the lakes deeper holes. Unfortunately, locating these holes on the moderate sized lake can be a challenge without a depth finder or someone knowledgeable about the lake. Large streamers on sinking lines are the best choice for catching these larger trout.

Access to the lake is adequate, with a decent fishing access site and boat ramp available on the western side of the lake near the town of Ennis. While Ennis Lake is not huge, it is still fairly sizable and can be quite windy, making float tubing a difficult proposition. Anglers will find the best success either using a motorboat or a canoe or inflatable kayak.
