The Kootenai River should be classified with the large rivers in Montana such as the Missouri, the Yellowstone, the Clark Fork as potential rivers that can respond to special regulations and better flow releases that recognize one of the major uses of those rivers as a trout fishery and a wonderful economic asset to Montana. Dave Blackburn is doing a marvelous job of promoting those kind of ideas on the Kootenai. He has also built a lovely lodge alongside the river that I would recommend to anyone that can stay and have a total experience. This is something I have promoted in my business over the long years. I think the total experience is something you can really enjoy in northwest Montana. So I give it my full endorsement.
