Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will lift “hoot owl” fishing restrictions for the Blackfoot tributaries beginning Wednesday, Sept. 9.

Morrell, Gold, Belmont, Cottonwood, Copper, and Monture Creeks; the North Fork of the Blackfoot River below North Fork Falls; and Landers Fork have been under restrictions that prohibit fishing from 2 p.m. until midnight since July 30 to reduce the impact on drought-stressed fish.

The lifting of these restrictions means that all western Montana rivers and streams are now free from drought-related angling restrictions.
