    My estimate is that there is zero chance it will be open that soon. I cancelled my mid-June lodging reservations in Gardiner before the closure was announced as I couldn't conceive of the Park being open amidst this outbreak.

    From what little I'm hearing locally everything is still up in the air. I'm just east of the Park.

    I don't think anyone knows at this point, but if I had to guess, I'd say a little less than 50/50. That's only an optimistic guess. Fishing in the park doesn't usually open till the last weekend in May anyway.

    I kind of see the number of visitors to the Park, and surrounding area being lighter than normal, even if the Park does open. People still may be a bit crowd shy. Even if the Park isn't open, I'm thinking the whole area will draw less people, and maybe less fishermen early on.

    Usually I fish Hebgen Lake during late May, and I go into YNP to watch bears on nasty days. I doubt the park will be open until late May or June, as y'all said, but thought I'd stir up some discussion. I have reservations for all of June too, so I'll wait and see.

    Trump just extended the stay at home policy to the end of April, so I wouldn't count on anything at this point. Interesting article:
