FWP SEEKS COMMENT ON COMMERCIAL FISHING REGULATIONS Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking comment on proposed commercial fishing regulations on Lake Helena and Canyon Ferry Reservoir for the harvest of carp. The proposed regulations for 2013 specify the areas where carp can be harvested and the process for reporting commercial operations to FWP prior to fishing. Special regulations would help protect nesting waterfowl on Lake Helena and prevent conflicts with recreational anglers on Canyon Ferry. The FWP Commission is authorized to approve one commercial fishing operation for each body of water and to set the regulations. Only one individual has applied for the 2013 commercial fishing permit to harvest carp from Canyon Ferry Reservoir and Lake Helena. Comments are due by February 11, 2013.
Comment letters may be mailed to: Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Fisheries Bureau P.O. Box 200701 Helena, MT, 59620-0701. For assistance, phone the FWP Helena Fisheries office: 406-444-2449 or Email Don Skaar firstname.lastname@example.org
The public comment period for this public notice ended on Monday, February 11, 2013.
