Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks needs your help to find the person who has been putting zip ties on the lips of walleye.
The fish were caught near Cascade just below the Holter dam. Someone has put a zip tie on the bottom lip of the fish, in what wildlife officials is a type of tagging. The ties are causing deformities in the animals. FWP tells us that there have been several other reports of fish with these ties. Officials say right now, all they really want is for the person responsible to stop.
FWP said wildlife researchers no longer tag fish due to how much damage it does to the fish. If you know who is doing this you are urged to call the region 4 office 406.454.5840
