The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks River Recreation Advisory Council will meet in Helena, March 6-7 to continue its work to develop recommendations to manage recreation on the state's rivers.
At the meeting, the council will continue discussing permit allocation systems. The group will meet at the Montana Association of Counties building, 2715 Skyway Dr, beginning at 10 a.m. on March 6 and 8:30 a.m. on March 7.
The council was appointed by the FWP Commission and consists of a diverse group of 22 citizens representing resident and nonresident anglers and boaters, commercial outfitters, tourism, landowners, the Montana Legislature, and the FWP Commission.
