More Fishing Closures Due To Low Stream Flows

BOZEMAN -

On Thursday, Fish Wildlife and Parks closed the Blackfoot River to fishing due to low river flows and high temperatures.

Low river flows and high river temperatures can be harmful to fish because they can overcrowd the streams, reducing oxygen in the water.

Other portions of rivers across southwest Montana have closed including the Big Hole River and the Madison River.

FWP Spokesperson, Andrea Jones said river temperatures have to lower to 70 degrees for three days for a fishing area to re-open.

"It's possible we could see other closures due to low flows on other rivers around southwest Montana," said Jones. "We also count on the corporation not just anglers, but irrigators because they can play into flows based on whoever might be drawing for the river."

Jones adds temperature related closures will be lifted by September 15. Flow related closures will be lifted by October 31.
