More Money, More Fish

Posted: Updated:

You may be getting more bang, but for a bigger buck, on the Flathead Indian Reservation.

October 16 at 10:00 a.m., the Flathead Reservation Fish and Wildlife board will discuss, and possibly approve, a one dollar increase for all licenses for non-members on lands owned by the Confederated Salish Kootenai tribe.

They will also be talking about doing away with the slot limit on lake trout caught in the southern half of Flathead Lake.

Right now, fishers on the portion of Flathead Lake within the reservation must release trout measuring between thirty and thirty-six inches, and they may only keep one measuring longer than thirty-six inches.

"It's up for discussion," said John Fraley, a spokesman for Montana FWP, "You never know exactly what the boards going to do. Whether they'll need more discussion on it, or whether they'll go ahead and approve it."

The board, consisting of three state members, three tribal members, and an FWP representative, will meet via conference call since the government shutdown has closed the Bison Range.
