Montana fisherman finds 11 miles of Missouri River full of trash

HELENA — Montana is known for its beautiful mountain scenery, and some would even consider it the best place on earth for fishing so when avid fisherman Patrick Hogan was out on the Missouri River near Townsend and saw it sprinkled with old water bottles, he couldn’t let it go.

Hogan says, “When you put in at Toston, you float directly underneath the new bridge that is being built there along Highway 287 and immediately thereafter, I started seeing debris against the left-hand side of the bank.”
