FWP Seeking Comment on Fishing Access Sites and Camping Topics
By rowdyrob

Posted: November 2, 2016

FWP has two proposed rule changes on the table and are looking for public comment.

  1. Commercial use of fishing access sites. This rule affects the price of a filming permit for fishing access sites and wildlife management areas.  Currently, the rule is affected by the size of the crew, the new rule would make there be one rate for large groups and establish a higher fee.
  2. Camping fee proposal would increase the camping fee from $7 to $12 for license holders and from $12 to $18 for non-license holders.


FWP will accept comments until November 22 and consider them when they make their final decision at the December 8th meeting.

Proposed changes can be found at fwp.mt.gov under News, then Recent Public Notices. Comments can be provided online, or sent by mail to FWP, Fisheries Division, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620.
