GREAT FALLS – Lower Holter Lake will re-open to recreational boating and other uses effective at 8 p.m. on Friday August 6.
The closure order was issued by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks on August 4. The fire-fighting planes scooping water from the lake are being re-assigned to fire operations elsewhere, and the closure is no longer needed.
The fires in the area and across other western states are a rapidly changing situation however, and recreationalists should be aware that this or other closures could be ordered again in the future with short notice.
Any additional updates will be posted as they occur on the Montana FWP Region 4 Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/MontanaFWP.R4
Questions can also be directed to the FWP Region 4 office at 454-5840
