Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) issued a decision notice on a proposal to acquire 12 acres of land near old Harper's Bridge. The notice prescribes acquiring land along the Clark Fork River west of Missoula---4 by donation and 8 by a purchase.
This site would provide key access for floaters on a stretch of the Clark Fork where boat access is currently quite limited. The acquisition would also allow the possibility of FWP developing a formal Fishing Access Site in the future.
