Flathead Lake in Montana, is the largest natural fresh water lake west of the Mississippi in the lower forty-eight. It has about 185 miles of shore-line.

 

It is named for the Salish (Flathead) Indians, whose Tribal Land is at the south end of the lake.

 

 

 

The glacial damming of the Flathead River formed Flathead Lake. The Kerr Dam near Polson, provides power and irrigation to the area.

Today The Kerr Dam provides electricity to approximately 125,000 homes, and is a major source of revenue to the Salish and Kootenai tribes, as it resides on Tribal property.

Since Flathead Lake lacks the nutrients necessary to promote algae growth, this body of water has become world famous for its clarity.

 

Its maximum depth is about 371 feet.
