Fishing Restrictions Lifted on Bitterroot and Clark Fork Rivers

The Bitterroot River fishing restrictions have been lifted by the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

The Bitterroot and the Clark Fork Rivers had both been restricted to fishing only in the mornings for over a month. The reason – low water and water temperatures above 70 degrees. Recently, the water temperatures have been holding at a level below 70 degrees.

The Blackfoot drainage, however, has many streams on “hoot owl” restrictions, mainly because of low streamflow. Fishermen can not fish between 2 p.m. and midnight on the Morrell, Gold, Belmont, Cottonwood, Copper and Mounture Creeks, and the North Fork of the Blackfoot River, and Landers Fork. Those are important bull trout locations.
