Montana, Fish, Wildlife and Parks have closed most fishing access sites along the Tongue and Yellowstone Rivers due to high water and flooding conditions. F-W-P Region 7 Information Officer Dwayne Andrews says the public should refrain from using these sites.

Andrews  describes the damage the flooding has caused to the fishing access sites.

Andrews says the Yellowstone River is likely to see high water levels for another month at least because of a large snow pack in the mountains still to run off. The public is advised to stay off the river until water levels recede. Large amounts of debris can be seen floating in the water posing a dangerous hazard to boaters.
