Local Area






Thompson Falls, Montana is an unspoiled paradise hidden away in the northwestern part of the state. With friendly and welcoming locals, you'll never be bored with the recreational opportunities flowing abundantly like the waters of the Clark Fork River. Thompson Falls was named after a fur trader and is surrounded by the pristine wilderness of the Lolo and Kootenai National Forests.

The Clark Fork River






The Clark Fork River is one of the longest rivers in Montana meandering more than 280 miles paralleling I-90. There are many access points, and its diverse terrain makes certain that no two trips down its waters are the same. It originates in the Silver Bow Mountains with many tributaries contributing to its reputation as one of the most popular destinations for fly fishing in the United States. The river offers recreation such as floating, rafting, kayaking, and river surfing in addition to its epic fishing. The best fishing waters are found between the origin and the confluence with the Flathead River near the Paradise-Plains area. Fish caught in these waters range in size, but some can be from 14-20 inches. Northern Pike can be 40 inches or more! Species thriving here include the Clark Fork native Westslope Cutthroat and world-class brown and rainbow trout as well as smallmouth bass.
