BOZEMAN - Flooding has prompted the closures of two fishing access sites on the Madison River.
Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks closed Ennis Fishing Access Site due to minor flooding caused by ice jams on the Madison River on Wednesday. That is in addition to last week's closure of Valley Garden Fishing Access Site for the same reason. Both sites are expected to reopen within 48 hours with changing weather conditions.
Ice on rivers is extremely unstable, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. Recreationists are urged to use caution around any bodies of water in southwest Montana throughout the winter and spring.
