ENNIS - Flooding has temporarily closed the Ennis and Valley Garden fishing access sites, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

Ice jams on portions of the upper Madison River have caused water, ice and debris to flow into the sites, creating unsafe conditions, including the possibility for trees to fall. These sites will be reopened when conditions are safe again.

The Ennis Fishing Access Site is a half-mile southeast of Ennis, and the Valley Garden Fishing Access Site is about two miles northeast of Ennis.
