Welcome

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Natural Resources Department is comprised of three Divisions.  The Division of Environmental Protection, the Division of Fish, Wildlife, Recreation, and Conservation, and the Division of Water.

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes of the Flathead Indian Reservation announce the availability of Hunting, Fishing and Recreation Regulations for the 2017-2018 license season.  The new license season began March 1, 2017.

“Recent discovery of zebra mussels in central Montana has elevated the need to reduce the risk of infestation in Flathead Lake.  In order to participate in Mack Days fishing events all boats need to be inspected for Aquatic Invasive Species,” said Tom McDonald, Manager of the Division of Fish, Wildlife, Recreation and Conservation. 

McDonald invites all bird hunters, anglers, recreationists to the Tribes’ Division of Fish, Wildlife, Recreation and Conservation office at 406 6th Avenue East in Polson to obtain their license and regulation booklet for the 2017-2018 permit season.  Regular business hours are Monday through Thursday 7 am to 5:30 pm.

According to McDonald, permits are also available at local vendors throughout Western Montana.  The Tribe and State will continue implementing the State Automated Licensing System and will offer the new licenses and stamps for sale on the internet at http://app.mt.gov/index

Contact Amanda Bourdon, Permit Agent, Germaine White, Information & Education Specialist, or Tom McDonald, Division Manager at 883-2888 if you have questions regarding the Hunting, Fishing and Recreation Regulations for the 2016-2017 season.
