Bigfork sits on the east side of Flathead Lake and is near Swann Lake. Bigfork is usually packed with folks during the summer wakeboarding and swimming, but plenty of locals and tourists will fish right off their back dock. If you can, rent a boat to explore Flathead Lake and fish in one of the many deep bays or off one of the many islands. There is so much opportunity for all types of fishermen.

We were surprised more Montana towns didn't make this list. Places like Ennis, Thompson Falls, or Bonner could have been included.
