Dry Bridge Slough Dry Bridge Slough


This 3-acre pond is stocked annually with rainbows, and yellow perch. The best fishing is April, May and June. The pond is open to family fishing and anyone can fish, though adults are asked to voluntarily release their catch. The pond is stocked with assistance from the "Hooked On Fishing, Not On Drugs" 4th grade class from nearby Hedges school. The pond is tree-lined with benches and a hiking path around the pond and turtles, muskrats, ducks, osprey and bald eagles can be observed. A porta-pottie is provided by FWP. The pond was dredged to deepen it in 2003 with assistance from Les Schlegel Enterprises contracting, Sunriser Lions, Flathead Wildlife, Inc., Bonneville Power Administration, Kalispell City Parks and FWP.
