Upper Big Hole Now Closed To Fishing

Low stream flows and continued high water temperatures have prompted Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks officials to close another section of the Big Hole River.  A new Upper Big Hole fishing closure went in effect on Sunday, August 11. Details here:

The Upper Big Hole River from Rock Creek Bridge (5 miles upstream of Wisdom) to the mouth of the North Fork Big Hole (approximately 14 miles downstream from the Wisdom Bridge) is now closed to all fishing until conditions improve.

Flows on the Upper Big Hole in the area noted above have dropped below 20 cubic feet per second (cfs) for three consecutive days. FWP’s drought plan calls for angling closures to be imposed when this occurs. This closure will remain in effect until flows improve to at least 40 cfs for seven consecutive days with water temperatures less than 70 degrees for three consecutive days as well.

For details on all emergency angling restrictions and other drought updates, check the FWP online fishing guide.
