Local Area Travel back in time to 1864 when prospectors were anxiously seeking to strike it rich with the discovery of gold. Four such prospectors named the Four Georgians did just that in a gulch off Prickly Pear Creek that they named Last Chance Gulch and birthed the area we know as the state capital of Helena, Montana. That empty gulch quickly grew into a bustling city and the "Queen City of the Rockies" flourished. In 1875, Helena became the state capital and is a culturally rich city that has activities to appease every type of person. Last Chance Gulch has been transformed into Helena's Main Street and is the foundation of a beautiful outdoor walking mall with unique boutiques and wonderful little coffee shops and restaurants. In addition, Helena has spectacular buildings that display the grand architecture of a historical time. Buildings that you will surely not want to miss include the St. Helena Cathedral which is an excellent example of Geometric Gothic Architecture. Another is the Moorish Revival Civic Center which towers over the downtown area. You will want to check out the Queen Anne-style Original Governor's Mansion with its twenty rooms that have all been restored with the elegance that was of that time period. The Montana State Capitol Building is breathtaking with numerous paintings of momentous Montana events. Helena offers much to do ranging from theaters, farmer's markets, symphony concerts, the fair, and their popular Alive@Five gatherings. There are art galleries and museums to visit, tons of eclectic shopping, local microbreweries, an epic trail system, and a busy local calendar to always allow for a good time and memory-making. If you prefer outdoor activities, you can travel a few miles to where the Missouri River flows through Holter Lake, Hauser Reservoir, and Canyon Ferry Reservoir. There are opportunities for fishing, swimming, boating, water-skiing, and more! With its scenic surrounding mountains and its rich history, Helena has something for everyone! Area Attractions Great Divide The Great Divide allows for skiing in the Montana sunshine! Only 23 miles from Helena and 95 miles from Great Falls, the lift tickets are reasonably priced and there are 3 main mountain lifts. There is a base lodge that offers up a cup of warm cocoa or food. Canyon Ferry Lake The Canyon Ferry Valley is rich with recreational opportunities! The lake spans 25 miles leaving plenty of room to boat, fish, sport fish, sail, swim, water ski, and more. It is proudly Montana's 3rd largest body of water and a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts. There are 24 recreation sites that are maintained by the Bureau of Reclamation. Fishing is phenomenal and you can reel in Trout, Salmon, Perch, and Walleye year-round. When the snow flies, the lake is dotted with ice fishing huts and is also utilized for ice skating and iceboat sailing. In addition, there is the Canyon Ferry Wildlife Management Area which encompasses 5,129 acres. The goal of this area is to maintain the existing habitat and provide a place for wildlife viewing and hunting. Archery, shotgun, muzzleloader, and traditional handgun can be used to hunt white-tailed deer and birds such as pheasants, ducks, and Canada geese. The area is superb for viewing migratory or nesting birds such as Canada geese, double-crested cormorants, American white pelicans, Caspian tern, and ospreys. White-tailed deer, beaver, raccoon, mink, red fox, and sometimes otters and moose can be observed. Holter Lake The emerald, green waters of the spanning lake stretched out in front of the property provide the difference between country living and utterly wonderful recreation and lake living! The lake is formed by Holter Dam on the Missouri River. Holter Lake is popular for its fishing and its water recreational attributes. Many visit the lake to camp, boat (non-motor and motorized), water ski, surf, wakeboard, swim, tube, float, hike, photograph, and view wildlife and birds. With boundless recreation opportunities, the lake makes a busy spot in the summer months among locals. The lake is a moderate-sized reservoir at 3660 acres. Access to the lake is wonderful. Several boat ramps exist along the shore with several designated fishing access sites. Located in the west-central portion of the state near Helena, Montana, there are also well-maintained campgrounds available. The lake is surrounded by rugged and majestic mountains and sparsely wooded hills. This area is also rich with history as Lewis and Clark made their famous trek through this area 200 years ago. You'll be stunned by the views of the Sleeping Giant Wilderness Study Area and the Gates of the Mountains is a beloved trip via watercraft. Fishing The Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks stock Holter Lake annually with a significant number of rainbow trout. To catch a sizable trout, you will need to take a boat out sink lines deep. Spin fishing is the most popular method used on the lake because of the various depths. Large spoons or live bait are used to catch the bigger fish. In addition to rainbow trout, Holter Lake also has mountain whitefish, brook trout, brown trout, pike, walleye, and yellow perch. Fly fishing is less popular on the lake but below the dam is where the blue ribbon stretch of the Missouri River begins. There is one entity that draws thousands of visitors from all around the world to this area and that is fishing. These waters are filled with nutrients from the cold tailwaters from the bottom of Holter Dam creating a smorgasbord of feed for those finicky fish. As a result, the population of rainbow and brown trout surged averaging at about 7000+ fish per mile of river. These fish are frequently greater than 10 inches in length! The river is a playground offering year-round fishing. In addition to the plethora of fishing access sites along Interstate 15, there are numerous streams and creeks in the area to tackle. From Holter Lake, Hauser Lake and Canyon Ferry Lake also provide excellent fishing and boating.
