Visiting a Montana Fishing Access Site on the July 4 holiday is a great idea – just leave the fireworks at home, please.
Fire season in Montana is already underway in many parts of the state. This means it’s all our responsibility to be careful with fire and any potential sources of ignition. It’s been long-standing policy with FWP to keep fireworks off our sites to ensure the safety of our public and to protect our recreation and habitat resources.
Fireworks are illegal on all Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks sites, including Fishing Access Sites, Wildlife Management Aras and other sites.
Anyone using fireworks on FWP lands may be charged with a misdemeanor that can result in a fine up to $500.
