FWP Seeks Public Comment On Update To Rules On Holter Lake

Wednesday, November 25, 2009



            Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on a revision to the existing rule restricting water skiing on Saturday, Sunday and legal holidays on upper Holter Lake from the mouth of the canyon to the Gates of the Mountains.

            The proposed revision would expand the rule to include restrictions on tubing, wake surfing and similar activities during the same period. The existing rule was written before the popularity of these activities in which a person is towed by or rides in the wake of a vessel.

The rule is a safety precaution that is based on the narrowness of the canyon and the high density of boat traffic through the canyon on weekends and holidays.

The public may comment by Dec. 24 by email to: , or in writing to: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Enforcement Bureau, 1420 East Sixth Ave., P. O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701. For a copy of the proposed rule, go to the FWP Web site at  under Public Notices.
