The Environmental Assessment (EA) was placed on the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks web site on December 5, 2006. The comment period ended January 12, 2007. A press release was distributed regarding the proposed stocking plan. The local Walleye Unlimited Chapter and Trout Unlimited members were contacted. The initial EA did not indicate that a warmwater fish stamp would be required once largemouth bass were introduced. The EA was amended to address that change and public comment re-opened from February 5, 2007 – March 16, 2007.
