Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) closed all of Seeley Lake waters again for public safety while crews use the lake water to fight the Rice Ridge Fire.
The closure applies to all recreation, such as boating, swimming, wading and fishing, so that aircraft crews can safely operate as they dip water from the lake.
Officials say the closure will be in place until fire crews no longer need to use the lake for suppression efforts. For up-to-date information on this closure and restrictions related to drought and fire, visit fwp.mt.gov/news/restrictions/ or call the FWP office in Missoula at 406-542-5500.
