• Monday, April 27 in Bozeman, Mont. at Best Western Plus GranTree Inn, 1325 N 7th Ave.

The meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a brief presentation on native fish restoration projects including lake trout suppression on Yellowstone Lake. A discussion on angling regulations and a question and answer session will follow the presentation.
