Fly-in Fishing on Kishkutena Lake

At just over 7 miles long, Kishkutena Lake offers anglers a choice of bass, muskie and lake trout fishing. The lake has many bays ideal for smallmouth and the deepest parts of the lake (where the trout are) approach 80 feet in spots. There have been a few 50" inch muskie caught and released in Kish so it's well worth the trip. Several outfitters have outpost cabins on the lake, see below. The image shown below is an aerial of the outpost cabin owned by Northwest Flying
