Montana's Future Fisheries Review Panel will meet in Helena on Thursday, July 24, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Third Floor Conference Room, Montana Historical Society, 225 N. Roberts.
The panel was appointed in 1995 to review lake and stream restoration project proposals and to determine those projects eligible for funding under the Future Fisheries Improvement Program, created by the 1995 Legislature. The program was established to provide for the protection and enhancement of Montana fisheries through voluntary restoration of habitats for populations of wild fish with an emphasis on native species. Projects to enhance fisheries in lakes and reservoirs as well as in streams and rivers are eligible.
At the July 24 meeting, panel members will discuss 23 project applications.
Detailed files on each recommended project are available from Fish, Wildlife & Parks' Fisheries Division in Helena (phone: 444-2449). A brief summary of the review panel's recommendations will be listed on the state computer Bulletin Board in Helena.
The public is welcome to attend.
