If your dream is to catch a “Trophy Lake Trout” and experience Flathead Lake, Captain Mike can help make your dream come true on a Flathead Lake fishing charter.
WILD HORSE ISLAND
Old growth Ponderosa pine forest, incredible trails and wildlife viewing opportunities abound on the largest island in Flathead Lake. If you’re lucky you will see the handful of wild horses that still inhabit this park, which is only accessible by boat.
Wild Horse Island is the largest island on Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Montana. For centuries, the Salish-Kootenai used the island, approximately 2,164 acres in size, in order to pasture horses and keep them from being stolen by other tribes.
The park is noted for its wildlife including bighorn sheep, mule deer, songbirds, waterfowl, bald eagles, and falcons, as well as five wild horses. To protect wildlife viewing opportunities, pets are not permitted on the island. This is bear country and bears do frequent the island. Please store food properly on your boat or carry with you; there are no food storage lockers on the island.
Rare and endangered plant species have also been found on its Palouse-like Prairie grasslands. The island’s scenic shoreline is a favorite of hikers, boaters, swimmers and sailboat enthusiasts.

Your Safety is Our #1 Priority
All of our fishing boats are USCG inspected but what is more important is that our fishing charter Captains are qualified and certified.
Captains are Red Cross certifications in Adult, Child and Infant CPR, Adult and Child AED and First Aid.
If you or ANY MEMBER of your party is feeling I’ll, or has knowingly been around anyone with Covid 19 symptoms, or anyone who has tested positive, then DO NOT come aboard.
Since all of our charters are private party only, you do not need to be concerned about mixing with other persons or groups on our boats, beyond your guide. They will wear a mask upon your request, and you are welcome to adhere to the same precautions your group is practicing at all other times.
We are continuing to offer single use containers of soft drinks and water, but we are not offering snacks or food items on any charter, including lunches on full day trips like we have for years. You are welcome to bring your own beverages, but any food items are your responsibility.
Lastly, our guides retain the right to refuse boarding to anyone they feel may be showing symptoms of COVID 19, or are visibly sick at all. AGAIN, if you are feeling sick, do not come aboard.
