Decision Record Introduction of New Fish Species In Newlan Creek Reservoir

06/03/2014

Decision Notices

A draft environmental assessment was posted on the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks webpage from April 30, 2014 through May 30, 2014. No written or phone comments were received from the public. FWP staff discussed the proposal with two anglers at Newlan Creek Reservoir on May 8, 2014 incidental to other work being conducted in the area. These anglers indicated they were supportive of the proposal to introduce kokanee into Newlan Creek Reservoir. When asked why they would support the introduction, they believed kokanee were desirable to many anglers because of the challenge presented with catching them, they fight well, and they are good to eat.
