Drought Rule Proposed For Angling Closures (http://fwp.mt.gov/news/article_6666.aspx)
The Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission is seeking comment on a proposal that would continue to allow state officials to restrict or close waters to angling to conserve wild fish during times of drought. The new rule makes official FWP's existing fishing-closure policy and further explains FWP's authority to adopt temporary angling restrictions or closures to protect a fishery when stream flows are low and water temperatures are high.
