No Changes Planned for Paddlefish Season


MILES CITY — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has no plans to change its paddlefish season as a result of January’s oil spill in the Yellowstone River west of Glendive. On Jan. 17, 2015, a 12-inch-diameter Bridger Pipeline broke beneath the Yellowstone River six miles upstream from Glendive, dumping some 30,000 gallons of crude oil into the water. Efforts to clean up the spill and account for damage from the oil were thwarted until last week because ice covered the river.
