HELENA – Effective today, hoot owl restrictions are lifted on all sections of the Madison River and Sun River. These were the last fishing restrictions that were still in effect in Montana.
Hoot owl fishing restrictions prohibit fishing each day between 2 p.m. and midnight.
Angling restrictions are implemented based on several considerations: stream flow, water temperatures, angling pressure and other angling restrictions in the area that may divert use to waterways where circumstances are increasing stress on the fishery.
For current information on restrictions and closures, go to fwp.mt.gov/news/current-closures-restrictions/waterbody-closures.
