An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared for the proposal to develop and manage 2.5 acres of land owned by Missoula County as a new Fishing Access Site (FAS) on the Clark Fork River, west of Missoula. The proposed Kona Bridge FAS, located just off Kona Ranch Road, would remain under county ownership, but management authority as a FAS would be transferred to FWP. Site developments would be jointly funded by Missoula County and FWP, with Missoula County doing the development. Under the proposal, the new FAS would include the existing entrance road plus new developments including a paved interior road and parking area, concrete boat ramp, latrine, fencing and signage.

Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP), Region One, has prepared a draft environmental assessment (EA) for the purpose of improving the angling quality of Blue Lake in Flathead County through removal of northern pike, yellow perch, redside shiners, and pumpkinseed sunfish by means of rotenone piscicide and restocking with brook trout, Kamloops rainbow trout, and westslope cutthroat trout to create a mixed trout fishery.
The draft is out for a 30-day public review. Please direct your questions or comments to FWP Fisheries Biologist Grant Grisak, 490 N. Meridian Road, Kalispell 59901, (406) 751-4541, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions and comments must be received by Friday, September 15, 2006.

This environmental assessment encompasses numerous projects at the park. The proposed project is for that portion of Tongue River Reservoir State Park consisting of the park roads from Hwy 314 to 100 yards beyond the Sand Point turn-off, Rattlesnake Point, Camper’s Point, Pee Wee Point, and Sand Point. As the proposed project is extensive, proposed work will be separated by park-wide projects and specific areas (Rattlesnake Point, Camper’s Point, Pee Wee Point, and Sand Point).
