New Gianforte Ad Highlights the Real Cost to Fish East Gallatin River in Bozeman

HELENA -- New Jersey multimillionaire and failed gubernatorial candidate Greg Gianforte is still struggling to explain the fact that in 2009 he sued Montanans to eliminate a public stream access easement near his mansion in Bozeman.
The latest example is a TV advertisement that features one of his wealthy donors as a fisherman: Brad Huempfner.
According to easily accessible donation records, Brad and his family have donated $7,460 to Gianforte and Republicans, evidently that’s the price you have to pay to fish near Gianforte’s mansion off Manley road.
Much more than a $29 seasonal fishing license most Montanans pay to fish anywhere else in Montana.
