“Gone Fishin'” for New Rules

(2011 KLYQ)

Simpler rules and the possibility of catching more fish on the Bitterroot River — sounds good?
New fishing regulations are being planned for the Bitterroot River. The Montana Department of Fish Wildlife and Parks will be discussing them with fishing folk in Hamilton Wednesday June 8.
The ideas for 2012 – 2015 include increasing the brown trout harvest in Rock Creek and the Bitterroot and Clark Fork Rivers, where the brown trout populations are growing. Also, officials would like to simplify the regulations with less harvest exceptions on the Bitterroot.
From the meeting in Hamilton (and one in Missoula the next night), tentative regulations will be written up and presented to the FWP Commission in August. After their “rulings on the rules,” the public will have a formal public comment period and then final reg’s will be adopted.
The Hamilton meeting will be June 8 at 7pm at the Bitterroot National Forest Supervisors Office, 1801 North First Street. The Missoula meeting will be at the Fish Wildlife and Parks office at 3201 Spurgin Road, June 9 , also at 7pm. Check out the fishing page at
