Situated on the Montana-Wyoming border, the magnificent Absaroka and Beartooth Mountains are home to more than 1,000 lakes and hundreds of streams. Many of these waters teem with fish; others are barren. Some are easily accessible; others are a challenge to find. So how does an angler figure out where to go and how to get there? That information and more is here in the newest edition of Fishing the Beartooths, which now includes even more fishing destinations—the twenty fishable lakes in the Crazy Mountains.
Rainbow, golden, brook, cutthroat, lake, or brown trout; grayling, walleye, or splake—whatever your dream catch, this indispensable fishing companion answers the questions every angler asks before striking out for a high mountain lake. Inside this guide you'll find up-to-date stocking schedules, information on fish abundance, precise location coordinates, elevation, surface area, and maximum depth for each lake; plus clear descriptions of trails, distances, landmarks, terrain, and even firewood availability—everything you need to plan your next fishing trip.
Whether you're a seasoned veteran of these spectacular peaks and plateaus or a first-time visitor, whether you're heading out for a day trip or a week in the wilderness, Fishing the Beartooths will prove an essential reference for years to come.
