Montana Lakes & Reservoirs: Holter Lake
Montana's Holter Lake
Holter Lake Recreation Area is located in west central Montana north of Helena. The lake covers 4800 acres and has a maximum depth of 125 feet at the dam. From a vehicle you will see an open, grassy area near the shore of Holter Lake surrounded sparsely by wooded hills on the northeast end. Boaters and Kayakers are well rewarded as Holter Lake bestows some majestic scenery not visible from road accessible shorelines.

Primary fish species include walleye, rainbow trout, perch, and kokanee salmon. Secondary species include brown trout, mountain whitefish, burbot and walleye.  The reservoir is stocked heavily and is known for good size rainbows and descent walleyes.

The towns of Wolf Creek and Craig just down the road and food service within close proximity. This site is available for day use and overnight camping. There is a boat launch, fish cleaning station, picnic tables and fire rings. Fees are normally charged from the second week in May through the third week in October.

Directions: Take I-15 north of Helena, take Exit 226, left 3 miles along Missouri River Road to lake.
