The proposed FAS is located along Big Spring Creek seven miles southeast of Lewistown along Fish Hatchery Road across from the lower unit of Big Spring Creek Trout Hatchery.

The draft EA is available for public viewing and submitting comments at the FWP website under the public notices link.

Written comments only will be accepted until 5 p.m., July 17, 2013, and can be emailed to or mailed to: Upper Big Spring Creek FAS Proposed Acquisition and Development, Attn: George Liknes, FWP R4, 4600 Giant Springs Road, Great Falls MT 59405.
