Yellowstone River Completely Reopened

The Yellowstone River from Gardiner all the way to Laurel, 183 river miles, closed to all recreational usage on August 19, due to a fish kill impacting whitefish. As of September 10, most of this closure has been lifted.

The remaining portion of the closure was lifted September 23. Trout populations are fine (literally fewer than ten trout were killed by the virus, riverwide), and whitey has been frisky even in the stretch of river where whitefish mortality was bad.

Hooray for things getting back to normal!
