Bagley Guide Service is a first class Flathead Lake charter fishing service in beautiful Bigfork, Montana. Flathead Lake is 27 miles long, 15 miles wide and has over 160 miles of shoreline. It is the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River, known for its crystal clear water, beautiful mountain scenery and world-class Trophy Lake Trout.
We are professional, friendly, and enjoy what we do. We have a proven catch record and the experience necessary to help make your trip a success. Whether you are a beginner who has never been fishing or a seasoned angler looking for a trophy fish of a lifetime, we specialize in CATCHING FISH and make sure you have a GREAT TIME while doing it!!!
We fish for the largest Trophy Lake Trout. Trophy fish up to 20lbs are common with fish over 30lbs caught each year.
We work hard and have the ability to put our guests onto fish. Flathead Lake is a large body of water and the fish move around as conditions change; such as baitfish movement, weather conditions and the time of year. We have the knowledge and experience to know when and where the fish are located at different times of the year.
Although we specialize in Trophy Lake Trout we also fish for Lake Superior Whitefish at specific times of the year. The action while fishing for Whitefish can be intense as they are in large schools and are quite aggressive. When the Whitefish are running we will troll for Trophy Trout for the first half of the charter then we will anchor and catch Whitefish for the remainder of the trip. This makes for an exciting and fun combination.
