4 Creative Ways to Celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week in Montana

National Fishing and Boating Week 2023 begins on June 3 and goes through June 11. For this year’s celebration, consider straying outside your tried and true fishing hole and embarking on a new fishing or boating adventure! Here are four creative ways you can celebrate National Fishing and Boating Week in Montana: National fishing and boating day

1. Try a new type of boating or fishing 

One of the best things about boating and fishing in Montana is the opportunity to experience these hobbies in so many different ways. Whether you view yourself as an avid flyfisher or a lazy day pontoon lover, this week is the time to shake things up and try something new. For example, if you’ve never chartered a sailboat in Montana— this would be the ideal week to try! 

2. Rent a boat on a beautiful Montana lake 

Love to boat but don’t own one? You can still participate in National Fishing and Boating Week! In fact, this holiday is the perfect excuse to rent a boat and get out on the water. View the options for renting a sailboat on Flathead Lake here

3. Explore (and fish) a new area of Montana 

Expand your search for Montana fishing holes to beyond your usual favorites this Fishing and Boating Week. One fun way to do this is by renting a boat and finding a remote fishing hole other fishermen can’t reach by land. For example, how about chartering a boat to Wild Horse Island on Flathead Lake and testing your luck fishing this beautiful yet remote area?  

4. Sign up for lessons

Rather than experience a new type of fishing or boating just once this year, gain the skills to develop a whole new hobby this Fishing and Boating Week! For example, at Go Sail Flathead Lake, you can sign up for a variety of ASA courses and become a certified sailboat captain
