York's Island

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks closed York’s Islands Fishing Access Site in Broadwater County on Wednesday until further notice.

Ice gorging and ice jams on the Missouri River have caused water to channel through multiple portions of the fishing access site, which is then freezing.

The combination of dangerous conditions includes flooded areas throughout the site, freezing and rendering unsafe conditions for pedestrian and vehicle travel, the agency said.

The closure will be in effect until conditions are safe. At that point signage closing the site will be removed.
