HELENA – Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on proposed commercial bait-seining waters. Every year, FWP updates waters to allow commercial collection of nongame bait fish. Approved seining waters are regularly monitored for AIS and pathogens and maintain adequate bait fish population to accommodate collection.
The Fish and Wildlife Commission designates waters allowed for these purposes, and the department describes these waters annually in the Commercial Bait Seining Application Form.
Proposed waters for commercial seining in 2022 can be found on the FWP website at https://fwp.mt.gov/binaries/content/assets/fwp/fish/misc/2022-commercial-bait-seining-list.pdf. The only proposed change for 2022 is to allow commercial seining in reservoirs in the Arrow Creek drainage in Choteau, Fergus and Judith Basin counties.
A commercial bait fish seining license is required for:
FWP will accept public comment until Dec. 8. Comments can be submitted via email to email@example.com or via U.S. mail to Fisheries Comments, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620.
