To help prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species Montana is inspecting boats at boat ramps, on highways and at the Montana borders. Most of these inspection stations are mandatory. If you see a boat inspection station, pull over and get your boat inspected. Avoiding or driving by the inspection station could result in a fine.

Efforts are being ramped up in the Flathead Basin since it encompasses some of the state's most intact ecosystems and blue ribbon fishing. In order to protect these ecologically and economically valuable resources, inspections stations have been added at Ronan, Clearwater Junction, Eureka, and Highway 2.  Additionally, it is mandatory to have your watercraft inspected before launching in Glacier National Park.
