Support “No-Wake” for Echo Lake!

Please take a moment to email Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks in support of its proposed “no-wake” rules for Echo Lake (and its adjoining Abbott and Peterson Lakes) when it is above flood stage - as it has been the past two summers!

Wakes from motor boats during high water is causing damage to Flathead County’s Causeway Road, its public boat launch, and to private property and shoreline around the lake.

No-wake rules during high water will still allow slow motor boating, offer unique quiet time for paddling on these otherwise busy lakes, and help protect private and public property from unnecessary erosion.

Please send a short email in support of the proposed rules to FWP’s Martha Abbrescia at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) by Feb. 22!

Or attend FWP’s public hearing in the matter at 7 pm, Feb 19, at the Hampton Inn, 1140 Hwy 2 West, Kalispell.
