From Sandpoint Idaho, go east on Hwy 200 thirty-three miles to the Montana state line. Continue another 10 miles then turn left (north) onto Montana Hwy 56. Up 24.5 miles past the Bull River and then past the Bull Lake watch for the Troy Asarco Mine Road on your left (west). Turn there and go approximately 3.5 miles and you will merge onto Lake Creek Road. Beware the road is gravel and narrows considerably. Follow approximately 4-5 miles and the signs to the lake. The big Spar Lake is one of the most beautiful you can easily access in the west. No HIKING! Be careful on the way out, the road to the Asarco Mine is easy to miss and you will end up just outside of Troy, MT.

The lake itself is about 200-300 acres and is quite deep. It is teaming with nice size cutthroat trout which will gladly take just about any fly in your box. Would suggest a dry though for sure in early morning and late evening. Remember to catch and release and have a great time. Definitely worth the trip.
