Emergency closure for a stretch of the Clark Fork River near Superior

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) is closing the Clark Fork River from Big Eddy Fishing Access Site (FAS) to Dry Creek Fishing Access Site. This stretch will be closed for recreating due to the fire northwest of Superior.

This section of river is closed in the interest of public safety while aircraft dip water out of the river to fight the West Mullan Fire. This stretch will remain closed as long as fire activities continue.
