FWP previously closed the stretches of rivers and access sites due to the River Road East fire. While conditions have improved, the fire continues to burn in the area, and recreationists are urged to be aware of fire conditions and weather.
All fire restrictions on FWP sites in northwest Montana are rescinded as well. Northwest Montana fire danger conditions have moderated and the threat of human caused fires growing out of control is reduced. Agencies are requesting the public to exercise caution with recreational campfires and continue to practice fire prevention throughout the remainder of summer and into the fall.
Fall hunters are reminded to drown all campfires with water and stir. Keep fires small and controllable. Never leave a campfire unattended. Completely extinguish all cooking and warming fires, even if you’re leaving camp for a short period of time.
