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

· Valley Garden FAS - Closed since December 13

Yellowstone River
· Mallards Rest FAS - Closed since December 13

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.
