Missouri River fishing access site closed due to high water

Posted: Updated:

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has closed the Mid Canon Fishing Access Site on the Missouri River about halfway between Helena and Great Falls due to high water.

The closure of the FAS just downstream from the mouth of the Dearborn River was prompted by the Missouri River flooding the campground area and latrine.

                Mid Canon FAS will remain closed until the Missouri recedes and the area can be cleaned up.  We'll continue to update you as we receive more information from FWP.
