Diversion Dam Stretch of Bitterroot to Reopen for Recreation

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Fish, Wildlife and Parks employees say they're hoping to open a stretch of the Bitterroot River over a diversion dam for recreation next week.

FWP closed the stretch of the Bitterroot River between Woodside and Tucker Fishing Access Sites in April.

That closure came after search and rescue teams responded to a few accidents at the diversion dam.

Last year, a young girl drowned near the dam.

FWP employees say on Thursday, crews are adding more signs along the bank to instruct boaters to portage before the dam.

They say they hope to reopen the river next week.
