Fisher River Area
Adress: Libby, Montana
The Fisher River Area is the watershed formed by the four forks (West, East, Silver Butte, Pleasant Valley) of the Fisher River and Wolf Creek. The Area is dominated by intermingled ownership, with Plum Creek Timber Company being the major land owner. This area is bordered on the east by the Flathead National Forest and the south by the Lolo National Forest. The Fisher Area is bisected by US Highway 2 running west to east. The Chain of Lakes consisting of more than 20 lakes is located adjacent to US 2. These lakes offer summer camping/picnicking, fishing, and water sports. Ice fishing is popular on the Chain of Lakes. The Salish Mountains are located north of US 2 and the Cabinet Mountains are located south and west of US 2. Peaks in these Ranges exceed 6500’ elevation. Road densities are high in this Area making access quite easy. More than 100 miles of summer use trail are open and available in this Area. Two developed campgrounds provide facilities for camping and picnicking. The Fisher River Area is a favored destination for big game hunters in the fall.
