FWP to Decide on No-Wake Zones for Swan, Echo lakes

By Beacon Staff

HELENA – Montana’s Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission will decide on no-wake zones for Swan and Echo lakes at an April 17th meeting in Helena.

Commissioners will also make recommendations for the governor to fill a vacancy on the Livestock Loss Reduction and Mitigation Board and take final action on a time-frame extension for the City of Helena to remove urban deer and on two land-related agreements.

Up for tentative approval are the 2008 mountain lion hunting quotas and the 2009 moose, big horn sheep, mountain goat, mule deer and elk license auction rules.

The commission will consider proposals for a combined state park and wildlife management area on the north shore of Flathead Lake and a fishing access site on the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River.
