Located in Whitefish since 1984, Lakestream has been a fishing staple for the Flathead Valley since the very beginning. From our humble beginnings on Central, to our current location, we have worked hard to cultivate an inviting atmosphere for every person that walks through our door.
Owners Justin & Kim
Kim and I moved to Whitefish in 1997 from Austin TX. We fell in love with this community and its people and never looked back . Our family has grown since the early days. We have two great Daughters Mason, and Maggie whom we have raised in this great Mountain town .
Justin Lawrence has been Guiding all over the West and Alaska since the late 90s .
Lakestream has been a BIG part of our lives from the start. I bought Masons first Fly Rod, a Reddington Red Start from Steve Thompson at Lakestream's original Central Ave location in 1999. I began working in the shop for Steve and Guiding for Lakestream in 2000. Kim and I bought Lakestream in 2014, and moved Lakestream to its current 669 Spokane Ave. location in 2016.
Cold clean water, great wild trout fishing, and public access to rivers, lakes,and lands is the cornerstone to the success of Lakestream's long running business. We have the best shop staff, and some of the best Guides in the industry, which gives Lakestream a foundation for its long running tenure in the Flathead Valley.
