FWP is seeking public comment on a proposal to purchase 76 acres of land along the Yellowstone River, north of Glendive, Montana for inclusion in a new Fishing Access Site (FAS).

Property is located just over 7 miles north of Glendive near Highway 16 and borders the Yellowstone River adjacent to property the department recently purchased, also known as the Stipek FAS. The combined acreage of both parcels will result in about a 110 acre Fishing Access Site.

This acquisition increases access to a high priority reach of the Yellowstone River and provides public recreational access to several publicly owned islands and properties.

Potential future development of this site may include an improved gravel

access road, fencing, signage, a boat ramp, parking area, and a vault latrine.

The public comment period will extend for (30) thirty days and comments will be accepted until 5:00 p.m., October 30, 2009 and can be sent to:

John Little, Regional Parks Manager:

Stipek FAS: 777 Property Addition Acquisition

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Region 7 Headquarters

Industrial Site W, PO Box 1630
