Russell Gates Fishing Access Montana

The Russell Gates Fishing Access is approximately four miles east of Clearwater Junction along Montana State Highway 200. That is, about 45 miles northeast of Missoula, Montana.

There are twelve campsites, two primitive toilets, and an on-site water well. It is open year-around and also used as a hunter's camp. The total area of the access and campground is 41 acres. There is a fee for camping. Check out the link to Fish Wildlife and Parks webpage.

We stayed here the first weekend in October and it was pretty cold at night. Nobody else camped here on Saturday night, and the other two Friday campers left early Saturday morning. A few fishing rafts put in here during the weekend, and a couple took out here. There is pretty good fishing on the Blackfoot River, although I don't think this site is very productive. It is more for accessing the area downstream.

What great photos. They remind me of a lake back in Canada that I use to spend many weekends at swimming and having fun.

Thanks for the memory and for sharing :)
