Nash says Some campsites and trails remain closed
due to the ongoing impacts of snow, high water, and muddy conditions. The National Weather Service is forecasting the Yellowstone River at Fishing Bridge to approach record levels this coming weekend.  The river level is forecast to reach 8.8 feet on Saturday, just shy of the 8.9 feet record which was set on June 18, 1997.  Flood stage is 9.0 feet.
