A fishing access site on the Missouri River south of Great Falls is now closed for the summer due to “non-sporting activities.”

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials have closed the White Bear FAS six miles south of Great Falls off Fox Farm Road through September 3 to address “non-sporting activity” problems.

White Bear FAS has many secluded areas that have been used in the summer for underage use of alcohol, drug use, violent behavior, public disturbance, vandalism, and litter, according to FWP.

When the seasonal closure ends, waterfowl and big-game hunters will have access to the river in the fall and early-winter months.
