Glacier Park Collection

Fish, Camp & Explore on the Flathead’s North Fork

Set off on the legendary North Fork of the Flathead River — famous for its spectacular views, crystal-clear waters and abundance of wildlife — on a bucket-list worthy, multi-day adventure.

With headwaters starting in Canada, the North Fork flows south, forming the western boundary of Glacier National Park. This majestic river provides prime habitat for trout, with a variety of water conditions. You can drift a fly across a deep, slow-moving pool or lay your line out along the tail of a fast-moving riffle.

Discover everything the North Fork has to offer — from stunning scenery to world-class catch-and-release fishing — on our multi-day expedition.
