Gritty Stone FAS closure 5-27-2014

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks closed five Yellowstone River fishing access sites to the public Monday and Tuesday because of high water and flooding.

Signs and barriers were erected at Buffalo Mirage near Park City, Indian Fort at Reedpoint, Voyagers Rest and Gritty Stone near Worden and Captain Clark east of Pompeys Pillar.

In all instances, high runoff in the Yellowstone River put water across access roads and in the parking sites causing concern for public safety. FWP will continue to monitor and manage the sites and others along south central Montana’s rivers and streams.
