Bighorn River anglers have united with Montana U.S. Sen Jon Tester and a ranch manager to release a new report that criticizes the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s management of Yellowtail Dam and the releases of water into the Bighorn River.
Based on the bureau’s own data and according to new information, the Bighorn River Alliance criticizes the splitting of the river’s management between Montana and Wyoming along with how much water the reservoir has dumped in the springtime to try and hit boat launch targets for Bighorn Reservoir.
Details of the report can be found on Montana Untamed at: http://montanauntamed.com/fishing/article_6fe48b1c-dc38-5a3a-9e16-fcf96fd1a103.html
