Flathead Lake Charters
The Flathead Lake Charters boat rental service was established in Woods Bay, MT in 1979 by owner/guide Jeff Rach who grew up fishing the sandy bars and rocky shoreline of the northwest Montana’s most scenic and productive freshwater lake. Upon Jeff’s retirement in 2021, long time friend Todd Noble took over the business to carry on the tradition.
