Fishing derbies get green light

[02.06.2017]

With safety precautions addressed, Montana open water fishing contests get green light for this season After careful consideration of safety and environmental precautions, and upcoming rulemaking proposals, all 58 open-water fishing contests set for this season in Montana will be allowed to occur, the Joint Mussel Response Implementation Team announced today.

Montana Mussel Response Incident Command watercraft protocols recommend rules for mandatory inspections of all boats and equipment entering the state before launching on any Montana waterbody.

Additionally, all boats leaving invasive mussel-detected waters would be inspected and decontaminated when necessary upon leaving those waters. There will also be additional restrictions and inspections to prevent the spread of invasive mussels.

Among the approved fishing contests are five scheduled on waters where invasive mussels have either been detected or are suspected to be present.
