The Fresno Reservoir Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is located on Bureau of Reclamation property in Hill County, but is managed by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (MFWP) through a long-term management agreement. The WMA is managed to conserve and enhance native upland and riparian areas for the benefit of wildlife with a focus on waterfowl. A secondary goal of the WMA is to provide public opportunities for outdoor recreation including, hunting, fishing, trapping, and bird watching. In order to assist MFWP in attaining these goals, a draft management plan was created. The management plan identifies objectives and management strategies to be implemented by MFWP staff. The management plan helps regional staff prioritize funding and manpower. Some actions identified in the plan may require a separate analysis and public review, consistent with the Montana Environmental Policy Act. MFWP proposes to accept the Draft Fresno Reservoir WMA Management Plan as Final. http://fwp.mt.gov/news/publicNotices/environmentalAssessments/plans/pn_0022.html
