Public comment sought for ice fishing contests proposed for winter 2016-2017
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on ice fishing contests proposed for the 2016-2017 winter season. Participants must comply with state fishing regulations, including daily and possession limits.
Applications for ice fishing contests may be approved, approved with conditions, or denied by the FWP Fisheries Division in Helena. Conditions placed on contests may help to minimize fish mortality, regulate harvest, reduce user conflicts and/or require additional access site maintenance when needed.
Information on the proposed fishing contests can be found on the FWP Fishing Contest webpage, http://fwp.mt.gov/fishing/whereToFish/contests/, or by calling 406-444-2449. All comments must be received on or before Aug. 26.
Comments may be mailed to FWP Fisheries Division, Attn: Fishing Contests, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
