Help us defend clean water and healthy rivers in the Upper Missouri River Basin. 


Oppose DEQ’s Water Quality Rollbacks

Nutrient pollution is one of the largest threats to Montana’s waterways, contributing to noxious, neon-green algal blooms and threatening drinking water supplies, business and recreational opportunities, and fish and wildlife.

Unfortunately, DEQ is proposing revisions to Montana’s water quality standards that are non-scientific, not protective of local water quality, and will increase nutrient pollution to our waterways. Tell DEQ that our rivers and streams deserve better. 


Request Gov. Gianforte Form a Cold Water Fisheries Task Force

A broad coalition of fly fishing businesses and lodges, conservation groups, and 875 citizens submitted a petition to Gov. Gianforte requesting the formation of a Cold Water Fisheries Task Force to address the decline of Montana’s world-class fisheries. 

Now, with the latest fisheries collapse in the Jefferson Basin, it is critical that the state steps up and takes action to protect the fisheries and communities of SW Montana.
