FWP to discuss new fishing regulation process during Zoom meeting Wednesday

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will host a statewide Zoom meeting on Wednesday, May 11, at 6 p.m., to discuss changes to the fishing regulations process.


The department is moving to a biennial process for the fishing regulations starting this year. The biggest change the public will see is that fishing regulations booklets will be printed only on odd-numbered years, with the next booklet ready by March 1, 2023, and valid through Feb. 28, 2025. The regulations review process for the 2025-2026 booklet will being in early 2024.
