Georgetown Lake, Montana
66 Southern Cross Road
At the top of the Rocky Mountains around 6,500 feet above sea level is Georgetown Lake. The lake was the direct result of the Flint Creek dam which was constructed in 1885 to generate power for the area. These days the lake’s primary function is to serve ranches and farms in the nearby valley and as a recreational destination in both the winter and the summer. Surrounded by three mountain ranges; the Pintler Range, the Sapphire Range, the Flint Creek Range and the Beaverhead Deer Lodge National Forest, it’s easy to see why this area is a favorite among visitors and residents alike.
At over 3,000 acres, Georgetown Lake is Montana’s most fished body of water, with more fish caught each day than all other lakes in the state. Regardless of the time of year the schools of brook trout, Kokanee salmon and rainbow trout keep local fisherman and anglers from all over the world coming back day after day. And, beyond fishing you can boat, camp, windsurf and swim in this vast water attraction.
