Proposed Fishing Access Site Annual Rule
By Matt Schauer

Posted: December 21, 2012

FWP wants to hear your opinion on the proposed Fishing Access Site (FAS) Annual Rule.

The proposed rule sets the fees for FAS camping, group use permits, facility rentals, and special recreation permits (SRP).

Here are some things the Annual Rule includes:

  • a $5 increase to the minimum SRP fee for commercial use, competitive events, and organized groups on the Blackfoot and Madison rivers
  • the minimum fee would be increased from $95 to $100
  • authorize FWP to require food storage at fishing access sites to address or prevent bear/human conflicts

FWP anticipates implementing food storage orders at only a limited number of fishing access sites at this time.
