FWP Commission to review new draft of Montana Chronic Wasting Disease Management Plan

(FWP) - The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission will review the final draft of the Montana Chronic Wasting Disease Management Plan at its meeting on April 19.
Montana found its first case of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in October 2017. CWD is an always-fatal neurologic disease like mad cow disease that affects deer, elk, moose and caribou. There are no known risks to livestock or humans.

Certified boater training now available online

Certified boater training for Tiber and Canyon Ferry Reservoirs can now be done online at cleandraindrymt.com.

Watercraft owners who primarily recreate on either Tiber or Canyon Ferry Reservoir can received the Certified Boater designation. The online training course provides participants with information about the invasive mussel threat; how to appropriately clean, drain and dry watercraft; and why it’s important for everyone to take responsibility in protecting Montana’s waterbodies.

Watercraft Inspection Stations opening for the season

(FWP) - Snowbird coming home?  Have a boat? Be sure to get it inspected.

The watercraft inspection station south of Dillon on Interstate 15 opens on March 31. The station will be open on weekends until mid-April then it will be open 7 days a week. Opening dates for all inspection stations will vary depending on location, boat traffic and risk of transporting aquatic invasive species.  The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes and the Blackfeet Tribe also opened watercraft inspection stations in March, in partnership with FWP.

FWP takes another look at Tiber access options

(FWP) - Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is looking at other options for boating access to Tiber Reservoir that will allow for adequate access while ensuring watercraft won’t leave the reservoir without going through decontamination.

In early March, FWP proposed limiting boater access at the reservoir to Tiber Marina and the VFW Campground. This proposal was meant to address the concern that in 2017 watercraft were leaving the reservoir and launching in other state waters without being decontaminated. Inspection station reports from 2017 illustrated this problem. Additionally, records showed that some boaters leaving Tiber were directed to inspection stations but never showed up.
