Bozeman, MT — Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is seeking public comment on proposals that would temporarily close two fishing access sites for road construction.

One proposal would close the Ennis Fishing Access Site, located a half mile south of Ennis on the Madison River, during a seven-day, early-season construction window between April 1 and May 15.  Another proposal would close the Mallard’s Rest Fishing Access Site, about 13 miles south of Livingston on the Yellowstone River, for three weeks between May 1 and June 15.

As there are no access alternatives to these sites, and for public safety, a full closure in both sites is required during road construction. FWP will work to notify the public in advance of these closures.

Comments on these proposals can be submitted in several ways:

  • By email: jpape@mt.gov
  • By phone: 406-577-7873
  • By writing:

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks

Attn: Jay Pape

1400 S. 19th Ave.

Bozeman, MT 59718

The deadline for comments is April 3.
