Fisheries biologists with Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Region 6 have updated a free guide that features 94 ponds in nine counties across the Hi-Line that are actively managed for public fishing.
The 49-page booklet, which includes information on fish stocking and biological sampling, also has color maps with directions to each pond. In addition, there are details about public and private pond ownership, access rules, and the fish species that are known to be present in each of the water bodies.
The booklets are available at the Region 6 headquarters in Glasgow, at FWP’s Havre Area Resource Office, FWP headquarters in Helena, and at the federal Bureau of Land Management office in Glasgow. They will also soon be available at the FWP office in Lewistown.
In addition, details about ponds that are fully accessible via public rights of ways are available electronically in the Region 6 “Recommended Waterbodies” section of fwp.mt.gov, the agency’s website.
For more information about the updated fishing access guides, call the FWP Region 6 office in Glasgow at 406-228-3700 or FWP’s Havre Area Resource Office at 406-265-6177.
