F.W.P. Lifting Some Fishing, Fire Restrictions

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is set to lift some of the restrictions they've imposed this summer.

Portions of the Big Hole River that were closed to fishing because of low flows will reopen 12:01 a.m. Friday.

The section from Melrose Bridge to the Notch Bottom Fishing Access Site is the section that will open.

The Big Hole River from the mouth of the North Fork to Dickie Bridge and the Madison River are closed because of high temperatures.

F.W.P. said their drought management policy opens those rivers September 15.

Officials said they aren't lifting all fishing restrictions.

"People should still be aware of those closures that remain in place, "Hoot Owl" closures and those other sections of the (Big Hole) river," said Andrea Jones, F.W.P. spokeswoman.

F.W.P. will also lift fire restrictions in Park and Gallatin counties at 12:01 a.m. Friday as well.

The Gallatin National Forest plans to lift its fire restrictions in the South Central Zone at the same time.
