Trails and trout: State seeks input on Fish Creek recreation

Joshua Murdock

The state of Montana wants to balance recreation and resource conservation in western Montana’s largest state park and adjoining state lands. 

And the state wants the public’s thoughts on how to do that. 

Fish Creek State Park, a more than 5,600-acre plot about 35 miles west of Missoula on the south side of the Clark Fork River and Interstate 90 between Alberton and Superior, is part of a larger complex of more than 45,000 acres of state lands in the area. The park is surrounded by the 35,317-acre Fish Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA) and about 6,000 acres of state trust lands. The amalgamation of state lands borders the Lolo National Forest. The area also includes campgrounds, fishing access sites and the Alberton Gorge Recreation Area.
