North Fork Flathead River Description

The North Fork of the Flathead flows directly south from the Canadian Border, and makes up the western boarder of Glacier National Park until its confluence with the Middle Fork at Blankenship Bridge. The North Fork is an exceptional West Slope Cutthroat fishery, with breathtaking views of Glacier National Park.

Techniques & Tips

Slower, deeper water is holding the most fish.

7-Day Forecast

Fish are still in the river system, but far and few between. Rainbows are being caught more than cutthroat right now in some sections.
