Monday Aug. 14th, 2017

With nights getting longer and cooler, a couple of sections of rivers in southwest Montana have met the criteria for lifting fishing restrictions.
Effective immediately, the following sections of rivers (previously under “hoot owl restrictions”) are open to fishing daily:
    •    Big Hole River from Saginaw Bridge on Skinner Meadows Road to the Mouth of the North Fork Big Hole River;
    •    Lower Beaverhead River from Anderson Lane to confluence with Big Hole River;
