HELENA – The comment period for a proposal for no-wake zones on the north end of Canyon Ferry Reservoir now ends March 29.

The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission approved the extension of the public comment period at its February meeting.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks recommended no-wake zones in the area last fall.

After receiving input from the public, FWP offered an alternative proposal in February that would achieve the same goals as the original proposal while responding to concerns raised by the public.

The alternative creates a 200-foot no-wake zone on the north end of Canyon Ferry Reservoir starting at Kayley Bay on the north shoreline and ending at Crittenden on the south shoreline.
