With the recent increase in temperature, Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is warning people to be on the lookout for ice jams.


A number of Region 3 fishing access sites are experiencing flooding with ice barriers forcing water to flow into these sites.

The following fishing access sites are closed due to ice jams and flooding:

Madison River
· Ennis FAS - Closed since December 13
· Valley Garden FAS - Closed since December 13

Yellowstone River
· Mallards Rest FAS - Closed since December 13

Missouri River
· York's Islands FAS - Closed today

These sites will reopen when safe for public use.

When entering a fishing access site, FWP officials ask you to use caution near the river banks if ice jams are present.
