Saturday, May 17, marks the opening day of Montanas general 1997 fishing season.

Before anglers take to the water, Fish, Wildlife & Parks reminds them to carefully check the creel limits and size limitations established for the waters they plan to fish. Each year a number of fishing regulations change. Thus, anglers cannot assume that the regulations in effect on a certain body of water the pervious year will be in effect the next.

Current fishing regulations are available at all FWP offices and from license agents throughout the state.
