The Miles City chapter of Walleyes Unlimited and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks have set up a Christmas tree drop-off location at Spotted Eagle Lake. The trees will be used in the spring to provide fish habitat.

Submerged and anchored trees increase habitat complexity, provide hiding cover for juvenile fish and nesting cover for some species of adult fish.

“This Christmas tree project has been an ongoing activity at Spotted Eagle, and we see the fish using the structure when we conduct electro-fishing surveys,” said Region 7 fish biologist Caleb Bollman.

Questions about the project or tree donation should be directed to Kevin McKoy, Region 7 fisheries technician, at 234-0915 or kmckoy@mt.gov or to Bollman at 234-0914 or cbollman@mt.gov.
