FWP Considers Speed Regulations for Lake Alva

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks officials are considering three separate options when it comes to speed regulations on Lake Alva. Right now, there are no speed regulations on the lake.

FWP officials are deciding between three options: to add a "no wake" regulation, to only allow a wake between August 1 and Labor Day, or to leave it as is. FWP officials started considering the regulations after getting a lot of public comment in favor of more speed regulations on the lake.

"We thought it was reasonable thing to float out for more comment, so we did, and what we found was some good support for no wake, but also a fair amount of opposition," FWP fisheries manager Pat Saffle said.

The final decision is expected to be made in November.
