These cooler nights we've been fortunate enough to have lately have cooled the rivers down enough that FWP lifted the Hoot Owl Restrictions on the Lower Gallatin and Lower Madison yesterday. It means that we can now fish those stretches all day long. As a reminder, the Gallatin from Sheds Bridge in Four Corners down to Three Forks was closed from 2pm to midnight due to high water temps. The Lower Madison from Ennis Dam to Three Forks fell under the same closure.
It's been a strange summer from a weather standpoint. But it could have been a lot worse and things are dropping back into really good shape right now. It's only going to get better as we move into fall.
We're always here at the shop to answer any questions you have, and to get you set up with what you need to have a great time on the river. Call us at 406-587-9111 anytime!
