FWP has lifted the fishing restrictions for the Blackfoot and Bitterroot rivers. Upper Clark Fork is still under hoot owl restrictions.

*The restrictions will close fishing daily from 2 p.m. to midnight until conditions improve. “Hoot owl” restrictions apply to the following stretches of water in west-central Montana;

• Upper Clark Fork: From headwaters where Silver Bow and Warm Springs Creeks join to Rock Creek (around 100 miles)

• Silver Bow Creek: From the confluence with Blacktail Creek to its mouth and confluence with Warm Springs Creek.
