Conservation > Fisheries Management Upper Missouri River Management Plan

The Upper Missouri River Reservoir Fisheries Management Plan guides fisheries management for Canyon Ferry, Hauser, and Holter Reservoirs and the Missouri River from Toston to Canyon Ferry and from Hauser Dam to upper Holter Reservoir. The plan sets fisheries goals to maintain quality multi-species fisheries throughout the system and outlines strategies to effectively meet goals. Development of the plan was completed through rigorous public process and was approved by the Fish and Wildlife Commission in December 2019.
