Where to Fish Harrington Lake

Size 7.8 acres

Directions Harrington Lake is very remote with no designated trail access. The easiest way to access the lake from Montana is via the Fish Creek trail system. To get to the trailhead, take Fish Creek Road (USFS Road #343) from Interstate Highway 90. Then go west on USFS Road #7750 until you get to the campground, Forest Service outpost (Clearwater Crossing) and trailhead at the end of the road. Take the North Fork Fish Creek Trail (USFS Trail #103) approximately 0.7 miles then Trail #99 (Straight Creek Trail) for ~ 6 miles up the Straight Creek drainage. At this point, where Trail #99 leaves Straight Creek for Chilcoot Pass, leave the trail and continue up the East Fork of Straight Creek for ~ 0.4 mile to the lake.
