Just 14 miles west of Anaconda, the picturesque Georgetown Lake offers a vast selection of countless activities year round. Nestled in the middle of three enormous mountain ranges, Georgetown Lake is located 6,425 feet above sea level and extends for over 3,700 acres. The three scenic mountain ranges surrounding it are as follows: the Anaconda Pintlers in the South, Flint Creek Range in the East, and the Sapphire Range in the West. While the lake was originally utilized to produce power, it is now primarily for recreational use as well as for providing water for the ranchers down in the valley below.
This exquisitely scenic alpine body of water provides fun opportunities all year long. Recreational use of the lake and surrounding area varies from season to season. From fishing trophy-sized brook and rainbow trout, to providing some of the best ice fishing in the state, this lake is rated as Montana’s most prolific lake. It is said that people catch more fish (per person) in this lake than in any of the other lakes in Montana.
Catch some enormous trout, enjoy the fresh-mountain air, and taste the local’s favorite dishes, all while relaxing in Anaconda and nearby Georgetown Lake in Montana. You will find that Bigger really is Better here!
