Stop SB497 and Defend Public Stream Access
Contact Your State Senator Immediately!
We need your help to protect Montana’s best-in-the-nation Stream Access Law. Contact your state Senator and ask them to vote NO on SB497 immediately!
Montana’s treasured Stream Access law is being significantly amended and weakened by a bill that is being shoved through at the 11th hour before transmittal. This bad bill infringes on Montanan’s right to access streams and rivers for fishing, hunting, floating and other outdoor recreation. It opens the door to allowing individual property owners, counties or other governmental landowners to block citizen’s access to our waters.
THIS BILL WILL BE VOTED ON BY THE FULL SENATE TOMORROW – Wednesday March 1st! If you care about having the full access to waters in the state that Montanans have enjoyed for decades and want to pass on to the next generation, let your Senator know that you strongly oppose SB497 today!

We hope all interested members of the public take the opportunity to protect Montana’s public outdoor heritage. If you have any questions, please reach out to us directly at [email protected].
