Yellowstone Fish Kills Prompt Afternoon Closures

July 11, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

If you are planning a trip to the Park this summer, be advised that many major rivers and streams are being closed to afternoon fishing because of excessively high water temps. “The fishing advisory in Yellowstone asks anglers not to fish between noon and 6 p.m. on most streams below 7,000 feet. The advisory includes Gardner River below Osprey Falls, Lava Creek below Undine Falls, Lamar River below Cache Creek, all of Slough Creek, Soda Butte Creek below Amphitheater Creek, the Yellowstone River below Seven Mile Hole, Madison River, Firehole River and the Gibbon River below Gibbon Falls.” Mike Stark in the Billings Gazette.
