Montana officials have called off a meeting on proposed regulations meant to ease crowding on one of the state’s most popular fishing destinations.

The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission announced Thursday afternoon that it was postponing a meeting scheduled for Friday on a suite of rules proposed for the Madison River. Instead, the commission will take up the proposal at its August meeting.

A news release announcing the postponement said it came because of concerns over the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and “being sensitive to uncertain and changing business dynamics.”
