Fisherman Dies In North Fork Of Flathead River

Glacier National Park

National Park News

The body of a 67-year-old Colorado man was recovered from the North Fork of the Flathead River last Tuesday. The man was fishing in the park near Camas Creek with a relative from the local area when they became separated from each other’s sight by a bend in the river.  The relative subsequently went downstream to check on Hughes, but was unable to find him so left the area and called for help. Individuals and rescue teams responded from Flathead County Sheriff’s Office, North Valley Search and Rescue, Border Patrol, and Glacier National Park.  A.L.E.R.T. helicopter from Kalispell Regional Medical Center also responded.  The man was found underwater about 100 yards south of Camas Creek.  He was wearing waders, but was not wearing a life jacket.
