Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host a public meeting on local fisheries issues from 7-9 p.m. on May 13 in the basement of the Montana State Bank in Plentywood.

FWP Region 6 Fisheries Program Manager Steve Dalbey said anglers and other interested parties are invited to come discuss the fishery at Box Elder Creek Reservoir, as well as other fishing destinations in and around Sheridan County.

Box Elder Creek Reservoir, also known as Bolster Reservoir, is an important public fishery on the outskirts of Plentywood. Dalbey and FWP Biologist Tyler Haddix will present information on the current status of the fishery, as well as the management actions that have taken place there over the past several years.

“Fish, Wildlife & Parks recognizes that Box Elder Creek Reservoir is an important public fishing water in the far northeastern corner of the state, and we’re looking at different management options to make the fishing there even better,” Dalbey said. “We’d like members of the public to help us decide the best ways to proceed.”
