Paddlefish Mandatory Reporting Phone Numbers Incorrect

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks recently discovered that the call-in numbers listed on many of the small gold mailed-out cards sent to those anglers with Upper Missouri harvest tags are incorrect.

A press release says that the cards are mailed out to anglers that successfully draw a harvest tag for the Upper Missouri River Paddlefish season, the white tags, and are also handed out when anglers purchase both yellow and blue tags. Both numbers listed on the gold card are disconnected. It seems that some anglers, however, were mailed a card where the numbers listed were correct.

The correct numbers for calling in to report a harvested paddlefish are 1-877-397-9453 or 406-444-0356. The correct numbers are found in the 2019 Montana fishing regulations as well as in the paddlefish regulations pamphlet.

FWP apologizes for this inconvenience and encourages anglers who were unable to report their paddlefish to report using the correct numbers.
