Groups, businesses double down on request for cold water fisheries task force in Montana

A coalition of conservation organizations and fly-fishing businesses are doubling down on efforts to compel Montana’s governor to form a cold water fisheries task force.

Upper Missouri Waterkeeper and a host of other conservation groups, fly-fishing businesses, outfitters and close to 900 citizens signed a letter that again calls on Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte to organize a cold water fisheries task force.

Among others, the coalition includes Orvis, the Fishing Outfitters Association of Montana, American Rivers and the Montana Chapter of Backcountry Hunters and Anglers. The letter was sent out this week, about a year after the parties sent a similar letter to Gianforte’s office.
