Yellowstone River reopens after deadly parasite killed thousands of fish

File photo of a bison grazing after sunset in Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming By Ruffin Prevost CODY, Wyo. (Reuters) - Montana reopened a stretch of the Yellowstone River to fishing and other recreational activities on Friday after a month-long closure prompted by the spread of a deadly aquatic parasite that killed thousands of whitefish and sapped the local economy. The closure was imposed by Montana's Fish, Wildlife and Parks agency and backed by Governor Steve Bullock, who last month said the rare but virulent parasite posed a threat to Montana's outdoor economy and tens of thousands of jobs. News of the reopening comes as ExxonMobil Corp. agreed to pay $12 million to Montana and the U.S. government to restore natural resources damaged or destroyed by a pipeline rupture in 2011 that spilled oil into the Yellowstone River.
