We're hard at work finally, putting the new site look up, and making sure all the content is fresh and newly updated. Please bear with us over the next week or two if you find something missing or a broken link or two. We are working hard to get caught up so if something doesn't work right today, please check back tomorrow!
If you're looking around for a few of the sections we had before, I'm sorry to say that some of them are just plain gone. I decided it was time to narrow the focus of the site a bit to make sure we can really do a good job of covering the things we kept around. We were getting a little thin before, trying to offer something for everyone. We've got a new sitemap here though, so you can see all the sections.
Fort Peck Reservoir is Montana's largest body of water, at roughly 134 miles in length with over 1,520 miles of shoreline. (In case you're curious, that's more shoreline than the state of California has) The reservoir was created starting in 1933 and finishing up in 1937 when the 3.8 mile long dam was finished across the Missouri River.
While this huge lake may not be what some would consider to be the most scenic of all lakes, it does have it's own unique charms. It also has a healthy and varied population of game fish. You can find Walleye, Northern Pike, Paddlefish, Lake Trout, Chinook Salmon and more here! Surrounding the reservoir is the Charles M Russell National Wildlife Refuge which encompasses over one million acres of land.
Last we checked, their weren't any special Zebra Mussel requirements here, the boaters are made aware of the mussel but it doesn't look like you have to certify your boat as "mussel free" to launch in Montana. We suggest you take a look at the Current Montana boating laws and regulations before you go just to be current.
