Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission will meet via audio/video conference call March 14 to consider final action on two fishery related items.
The call, set to begin at 8:30 a.m., will be video streamed live at FWP Headquarters in Helena, 1420 E. Sixth Ave.; and at each FWP regional office. Public comment can be offered at each location.
Only two final action items are on the commission's agenda: commercial fishing regulations for Canyon Ferry Reservoir and Lake Helena, near Helena; and consideration of 15 Future Fisheries improvement projects for the winter funding cycle.
The commercial fishing regulations are proposed again this year for carp harvests on the two lakes.
The Future Fisheries Improvement Program aims to restore rivers, streams and lakes to enhance wild fish habitat. About $585,000 is available to fund the proposed projects, which were recently approved by the Future Fisheries Citizen Review Panel.
