Fishing Limits Removed Temporarily at Camas Lake

Fishing - Region 4

Tue Jul 15 16:25:00 MDT 2014

The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission approved removing the angling creel limits in Camas Lake effective immediately through Aug. 3.

            Camas Lake is 19 miles west of White Sulphur Springs in the Big Belt Mountains of the Helena National Forest. The lake is the headwaters of Big Camas Creek.

The effort is part of a westslope cutthroat trout restoration project wherein non-native Yellowstone cutthroat trout will be removed with rotenone and replaced by locally obtained native westslope cutthroat trout. This regulation change allows anglers to remove as many fish as possible prior to the electro fishing removals.

This regulation allows unlimited harvest of fish in Camas Lake until Aug. 3.

Questions regarding this regulation should be directed to FWP fisheries biologist David Moser at 791-7775.
