Low Flows Trigger Full Fishing Closure on Section of Upper Big Hole
August 17, 2022
A full fishing closure will go into effect on a section of the upper Big Hole River due to low flows.
The closure begins at the river’s confluence with the North Fork of the Big Hole River upstream to Saginaw Bridge. This section will be closed to fishing starting at 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11. The closure will remain in place until lifted by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks in consultation with the Big Hole Watershed Committee, or until Oct. 31. The fishing closure replaces a hoot owl fishing restriction that has been in place here since July 29.
