We are looking to our anglers for information on their fishing activities in Montana. FWP conducts monthly surveys of a random sample of resident and nonresident license anglers. If you receive a survey in the mail, please complete it as the information you provide helps us to determine fishing pressure on the lakes and streams of Montana.
This Statewide Fisheries Management Plan, the first of its kind for Montana, provides the framework and directions for managing the state’s fishery resources.
For more than a decade, FWP's Future Fisheries Improvement Program has worked to restore rivers, streams and lakes to improve and restore Montana's wild fish habitats.
As you read through the Newsletter you will notice the multitude and wide variety of activities and actions that FWP performs in order to provide quality fisheries and fishing opportunities to anglers.

FWP is conducting the annual Paddlefish creel survey. This is a phone survey with an interviewer calling in the early evenings and on weekends. These interviews should only take a few minutes.
Thank you for your cooperation!
The summit was held February 5–6, in Helena, MT.
