Bighorn Flows to be Minimal Through June

May 11, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

The Bureau of Reclamation decision was announced yesterday. “Currently, the flows are at 1,500 cubic feet per second, the minimum acceptable level to maintain the river’s $30 million fishing industry. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, which manages the stream, recommends a minimum flow of 2,500 cfs to maintain side channels for trout rearing.” From the Billings Gazette.
