Fishing Closure Lifted On The Thompson River

Waterbody Restrictions, Closures & Reopenings - Region 1
This news release was archived on Sunday, September 30, 2007

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks has acted to lift the fishing closure on the Thompson River.  The entire Thompson River is reopened to all angling effective at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, September 1, 2007.  

The Thompson River received a Time-Of-Day closure on July 9, 2007 due to high water temperatures. Water temperatures have now been below the reopening criteria (70oF for at least 3 days) since August 23rd.  Longer and cooler nights make it unlikely that water temperatures will again exceed closure criteria.
