The hoot owl restrictions on the Blackfoot and Bitterroot Rivers are lifted as of now. Does this mean you will find pods of risers in the blazing afternoon sun, probably not. Still better to fish early.
Here is another huge threat to our lifestyle and heritage in Montana. Trapping, Then Hunting, Then Fishing is there stated agenda. If you are into taking public land and resources from the public, better find another guy to fish with while you still can.
Spruce moths and Terrestrials leading the charge. Hoot owl closure and rolling off by 2:00.
