Some nice coverage of local efforts to protect Tepee Lake from motorized use . . .
Cabin owners around a small, remote lake in northwestern Montana are worried that increasing pressure from motorized recreationists could forever harm their little slice of heaven.
That’s why Rachel Potter and her neighbors have petitioned the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission to pursue a nonmotorized watercraft designation for Tepee Lake. “We really believe that now’s the time to make a rule before there is a problem,” Potter said.
The commission agreed, which will start a rule-making process to ban motorized boats and personal watercraft from the lake.
