Vehicle access has re-opened at the Bighorn River site

BILLINGS – A partial closure that was in place at General Custer Fishing Access Site (FAS) on the Bighorn River has been lifted. Motorized access is once again allowed at the site.

High water flows on the river and flooded conditions led Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to temporarily prohibit motorized access at General Custer FAS on June 26.

Partial closures are still in place for Manuel Lisa, Grant Marsh, and Arapooish FASes on the Bighorn River due to flood conditions. Walk-in access at these sites is still allowed, but motorized access is currently prohibited. These sites will be reopened for motorized access as soon as conditions allow.
