Montana's Fish & Wildlife Commission will meet via video conference call March 13. The call, set to begin at 10 a.m., will be video streamed live at FWP Headquarters in Helena, 1420 E. Sixth Ave.; and at each FWP regional office.
There are four final action items on the commission's agenda: funding of nine proposed Future Fisheries improvement projects for the winter funding cycle; a land conveyance to the Montana Department of Transportation for bridge repairs at the Powerhouse Fishing Access Site on the Big Hole River near Divide; the Keep Cool Hills'15,000-acre cooperative management agreement for public access north of Lincoln; and a rule to carry out a new state law that would allow landowners to take wolves that are a potential threat to human safety, livestock or domestic dogs.
Items proposed for public comment include construction safety closure rules for the Big Hole River and Powerhouse FAS, Clark Fork River mitigation, and the Blackfoot River at the I-90 Bridge.
FWP also will ask the commission for an endorsement to proceed with negotiations for a 2,840-acre addition to the Beartooth Wildlife Management Area north of Helena; and will present information on a Big Lake WMA road easement north of Billings.
