Montana is moving ahead with its attempt to ease crowding on the Madison.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks have put forward a proposal for regulating fishing outfitters and easing crowding on the Madison River, one of the top fly-fishing destinations in the world, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reported. Its proposal would cap the number of guided trips, bar guides from some river sections on certain days and create a stamp program for anglers to begin gathering data on nonguided fishing pressure.
Some folks are raising objections.
Mac Minard, executive director of the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association, said that because of the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the commission should put the process on pause.
