Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has completed an amended environmental assessment (EA) for the proposed Hay Creek Land Acquisition of 53 acres, located near the mouth of Hay Creek in Flathead County. After reviewing the amended draft EA, and the public comments and public support FWP received on this proposal, it is recommended that FWP complete the proposed acquisition, subject to final approval by the FWP Commission and the State Land Board.
There were no changes to the amended draft EA based upon public comment received; therefore, the amended draft becomes the final EA. A copy of the amended decision notice is attached for your review.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is proposing to renew an existing water right lease on Big Creek, a tributary to the Yellowstone River near Emigrant. FWP currently leases 10 cubic feet per second (cfs) and proposes to continue leasing 10 cfs. Big Creek provides substantial Yellowstone cutthroat fry recruitment to the Yellowstone River and is vital to maintaining Yellowstone cutthroat populations. The Future Fisheries Improvement Program is proposing to provide 61% of the funding for the water right lease with the remainder coming from other FWP sources.
