There are tons of amazing National parks all over the US with lakes that offer a great time to fishing enthusiasts. But among all of them, one stands out to me. It is Glacier National Park in Montana.
The park is formed by over one million acres and was created to protect the mountain ranges, their ecosystems, and its fauna. The place is a piece of heaven where you can find over 130 lakes, more than 1,000 different species of plants, and hundreds of species of animals.
It borders with Waterton Lakes National Park in Canada, both were designated by the United Nations as Biosphere Reserves in 1976, and in 1995 as World Heritage sites. so you can imagine how much of a true gem they are.
Fishing at Glacier National Park
Fishing is extremely popular in the park, its streams and lakes are perfect for it. This place offers some of the finest fly fishing in North America. Trouts are also a common catch, in fact, pretty much every type of trout in one of the country’s greatest environmental strongholds lives here.
but be careful, even though no permit is required for fishing in this national park, there are certain regulations that you should be aware of. One of those regulations is set to protect the threatened bull trout. If you catch one you should immediately release it back to the water.
The climate, the stunning views, its cold weather and amazing biodiversity make this park a unique place.

Camping is allowed in Glacier National Park, in fact, there are 13 camping grounds, some of them even take reservations. Many of them right on the shores of a lake or stream.
