Montana's Fish & Wildlife Commission is seeking comment on a closure of a section of the Blackfoot River for safety reasons. Upon approval by the Fish & Wildlife Commission and local authorities, the closure rule would be in effect in the following area: The Blackfoot River near Bonner to floating and swimming May 1-June 30 from Weigh Station FAS to the downstream side of the I-90 Bridge piers. This section of the river has been closed year-round since 2006 due to public safety concerns, including clean-up of sawmill debris that emerged after the removal of Milltown Dam and hazardous conditions at the bridge piers during high flows. The new rule would continue the closure during periods of high flows but allow recreation to occur the remainder of the year. Comments are due by April 18, 2014
