NEW ACCESS IN CARBON COUNTY

FWP COMMISSION APPROVES PURCHASE

The Montana state Land Board has approved purchase of the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone Fishing Access Site south of Bridger.

FWP will pay $516,000 for the 172-acre parcel, which includes riparian river bottoms, irrigated farm fields, grasslands and frontage on the Clarks Fork of the Yellowstone River. Money for the purchase comes from Access Montana funds appropriated by the Montana Legislature in 2007.

Immediate plans for the property include internal roads, parking, a latrine, fencing, signage and weed control. Eventual plans could include a small campground, wildlife habitat enhancement and boat launch.

PLWA has long supported additional access on the Clark's Fork and commends FWP and FWP Region 5 staff for their efforts to make this acquisition. It could be a great waterfowl hunting spot as well as an additional access for paddlers floating the river.
