FISHING -- A 60-year-old fisherman from Georgia has drowned after falling in a creek in south-central Montana.
Carbon County Sheriff Josh McQuillan said the man was fishing with two friends on Monday afternoon when he fell while trying to cross Rock Creek south of Roberts and was swept away, tells The Billings Gazette reports.
One of the friends found him a half-mile downstream about 30 minutes later, but efforts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful. The man’s name and hometown haven’t been released.
Area rivers have been running high due to recent snowmelt.
