Fish Lake Airstrip

FAA Code: S92 Latitude: 46.3301953
Elevation: 5646 Longitude: -115.0631742

Fish Lake Airstrip is located high in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness area next to the lake. Its' turf surface can be soggy until July. The runway has fallen into disrepair in recent years with wallows and an uneven surface developing. The Forest Service is making patchwork repairs, but realizes it eventually will have to find funds for a major overhaul. Moose frequent the lake as well as the airstrip. Small cutthroat trout are plentiful and easy to catch. There are wilderness camp sites at the east end of the airstrip and a small Forest Service guard station at the west end.  No winter maintenance. Recommended use by mountain proficient pilots.  Do not taxi past cone markers at the end of 05.  Attempting to depart RWY 05 with tailwind is very hazardous.
