An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for public review regarding a proposal to stock Largemouth Bass to Lake Shel-oole, near Shelby, from the FWP Miles City Fish Hatchery.
The Largemouth Bass will provide an additional angling opportunity within north-central Montana. In addition to the angling opportunity, the proposed action is intended to create a top-down control to the Yellow Perch population thereby improving the size structure of the existing Yellow Perch fishery.
Additional copies of the draft EA are available at Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in Great Falls or are also available on the FWP website at http://fwp.mt.gov/news/publicNotices.
A public review and comment period will be open for 14 days. Written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Aug. 3I, 2021. Comments can be submitted electronically via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or can be mailed to:
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Lake Shel-oole Largemouth Bass Introduction Comments, 4600 Giant Springs Road, Great Falls, MT 59405.
