Nashua, Montana is in Valley County and introduces visitors to the sprawling northern plains of the state. The town is situated where Porcupine Creek flows into the Milk River. The Milk River meanders through the area for a few more miles until it empties into the Missouri River near Fort Peck Dam. Fort Peck Lake offers recreational opportunities such as boating, floating, fishing, hunting and more. Visit the Fort Peck Interpretive Center and Museum that displays the various animal species of Fort Peck Lake and the Missouri River. The featured attraction is the life-size model of Peck’s Rex, the Tyrannosaurus Rex in the lobby. South of Nashua is the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge.

More than 50 different kinds of fish call this body of water home. In 1933, a 3.8 mile dam was constructed across the Missouri River creating the reservoir. Anglers flock here for the Walleye, Northern Pike, Paddlefish, Sauger, Lake Trout, Small Mouth Bass and Chinook Salmon. There are several access points and boat ramps.

In the months of September and October locals and tourists from all over gather to watch the bull elk bugle and battle for the cow’s attention. Miles of parked cars can be seen while people sit on lawn chairs and watch for hours the wild display the elk present. Herds of deer, red fox and coyotes can also be observed.
