How to Navigate Montana Fishing Regulations

  1. Determine the fishing district you will be in and read the standard regulations that apply to all waters in the District.
  2. Check if the specific water you will be fishing is listed in the district's exceptions to standard regulations (these are listed alphabetically for each district). If the water you plan to fish is identified, the exceptions take the place of the standard regulations for those items listed (i.e. season, daily limits, etc.). If not listed, the district standard regulations apply.
