2015 Proposed Fishing Contest

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on fishing contests proposed for the open water season of 2015. Participants must comply with state fishing regulations, including daily and possession limits. Most contests require catch-and-release fishing and participants in these contests may not keep any fish. Applications for contests may be approved, denied or approved with conditions. Conditions placed on contests may help to minimize fish mortality, regulate harvest, reduce user conflicts or require additional access site maintenance when needed. The public may comment on the proposed contests through December 28, 2014.
