It's been getting quite warm in the Magic City and Montana lately and with that comes fishing restrictions.

My family and I live for fishing so this really caught our ear when it came about.

In case you have not seen, these restrictions will close the following rivers to fishing daily from 2 p.m. to midnight until conditions improve.

  • Big Hole from the the mouth of the North Fork Big Hole River to Dickie bridge
  • Big Hole from Notch Bottom fishing access site to the mouth
  • Beaverhead from Anderson Lane to the mouth
  • Ruby from Duncan District Road to the mouth
  • Gallatin from Shed’s Bridge fishing access site to the mouth

I can understand why they need to do this. It's for the betterment of the health of the fishery while water temps rise due to hotter weather.

Officials are keeping a close eye on things so I guess we'll get back to normal soon enough.
