FWP Surveys Anglers on Preference with Upper Missouri Reservoir Plan

HELENA, Mont. (NMB) – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks are reaching out to anglers across Montana for information critical for an update to the Upper Missouri River Reservoir Fisheries Management Plan.

According to a press release, a public survey released this week will ask anglers a wide variety of questions about their uses and preferences for the reservoir system and the adjacent stretches of the Missouri River. The survey will be accompanied by a series of public meetings and open houses.

The Upper Missouri River Reservoir Fisheries Management Plan guides FWP’s management of Canyon Ferry, Hauser, and Holter Reservoirs, the Missouri River from Toston to Canyon Ferry and the river below Hauser dam. This will be the third revision of the plan. The current plan is in place through next year.

The survey takes about ten minutes to complete and can be found online at fwp.mt.gov.
