Upper Missouri River Reservoir Fisheries Management Meeting Set In Helena February 12

Headlines

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will provide the results of fish population monitoring on Canyon Ferry, Hauser and Holter reservoirs, and review the effectiveness of fisheries management decisions on these waters, during a public meeting February 12 from 7-9 p.m. at the FWP headquarters building, 1420 East Sixth Ave., in Helena.

Data from the 2001 fish population monitoring indicates a decline in rainbow trout and yellow perch and an increase in the number of walleye in Canyon Ferry.  Hauser and Holter walleye populations have declined or stabilized, while rainbow and kokanee planted in the waters continue to show low survival rates.  Potential modifications to the rainbow trout stocking at Canyon Ferry, Hauser and Holter Reservoirs will also be reviewed.
