Hoot Owl Fishing Restriction from mile: 0.0 to 38.0 beginning Tuesday August 2, 2022

From the confluence with the Yellowstone River to Shields River Road Bridge between Jordan Bench Road and Pinkerton Road.

Water temperatures on the Shields River at USGS gauge 06195600 Shields River exceeded 73 degrees Fahrenheit for three consecutive days, meeting fishing restriction criteria (12.5.507, ARM). Temperatures collected in other reaches throughout the river also exceeded restriction criteria.

These restrictions will remain in place until lifted by FWP administrative action when daily maximum water temperatures do not exceed 70 degrees Fahrenheit for three consecutive days and adequate flows are maintained, or until September 15 (12.5.508, ARM).
