It’s beginning to look a lot like summer now that traveling restrictions related to Covid-19 have been lifted. That is very noticeable with the increased traffic on Highway 93 that includes many boats and other watercraft headed north to Flathead Lake.

Last summer the Aquatic Invasive Species inspections found 16 zebra or quagga mussel fouled boats out of a bit more that 113,000 inspection conducted at Montana inspection stations. So far this boating season seven AIS fouled boats have been flagged at state inspection stations located on I-15 and I-90.
