Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks will be permanently closing the Pennington Bridge fishing access site on the Big Hole River, four miles south of Twin Bridges. The closure will take effect June 17.
The closure has become necessary due to the river channel’s migration and the subsequent threat of latrine contents contaminating the river. The site was leased from a local landowner, but due to the evolving river conditions the lease has been terminated, and the latrine will be removed.
As an alternative, Big Hole River floaters can use the public boat ramp located on river left, immediately upstream of the Pennington Bridge FAS, under the bridge.
