I'd imagine June will be a lot of snow and ice (glaciers) on some good trails and gtts road might be closed.

A quick google produced this link, showing the Going to the Sun Road (yes, an awesome ride) opened fully on June 28 last year.

I've only been in that area in August, but in general, in the northern Rockies, if fishing, I'd plan a trip in June only if that was the only time I could go, and I'd expect to be flexible in terms of any and all planned activities. Sounds like fishing isn't on the agenda (and Glacier's not usually a prime destination for that), and you should be able to do some hiking somewhere (maybe just lower elevations, weather depending) but be cautious of using others' experience that's based later in the summer; for instance, bears will be in different places, seeking different food in June vs. August.

Are you doing the train? That'd be interesting, I bet. Have fun. Beautiful place.

Unfortunately, we are constrained by the schedule of the other travelers on this trip. Our original plan was last week of July but that got changed due my bil's work schedule. We're Delta'ing up to Minneapolis where we'll meet up with the rest of the group and take Amtrak out to Whitefish. It's also much shorter amount of time on-site than I had hoped, but at this point I'm just happy that we're getting to go at all.

Sorry to hear that fishing will be severely sub-par that time of the year, but it should still be a memorable trip and give us intel for WHEN we go back on our own in the future.

You will love the trip along the "High Line".

Two Medicine on the eastern side of the park is beautiful, and usually not as crowded. Good/great fishing from shore in Two Medicine Lake. Canoe rentals are available. If you're flyfishing from shore, a sinking line or at least a sink-tip is recommended

Tell your brother in law to get a new job. I haven't been there in years (decades actually) but you won't be able to drive more than a few miles of "Going to the Sun" or access the high country.

The Rockies generally are experiencing a scary low snow pack this winter, but not Montana. The Glacier area currently appears to be about 120% of normal.
