The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission is seeking public comment through Feb. 14 on a tentative recreational rule that would create a special recreation permit system on the Blackfoot River in western Montana.

 The new rule would require a permit for commercial use, a competitive event, or an organized group activity on the Blackfoot River and on FWP and Bureau of Land Management lands along the river.

Public hearings are set for Feb. 2 at 6:30 p.m. in Lincoln at the Lincoln Community Hall, and Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. in Missoula at Ruby's Inn & Convention Center, 4825 N. Reserve St.

Details on the proposed river recreation rule are available on the FWP web site at www.fwp.mt.gov , on the Parks and Recreation page under Hot Topics.

Comments may also be made by email to: csperry@mt.gov , or mailed to Charlie Sperry at Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, PO Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701.
