*** We ask that all footwear that is worn into Montana’s waters has non-slip rubber bottoms, NO FELT.  This is due to the potential for aquatic invasives (non-native invasive species).  Cleaning the bottom of your rubber sole sandals, waders and wading boots with 409 is an excellent way to protect against spreading non-native invasive species.
