The Hell Creek Marina building reconstruction project will reconstruct and expand the main concession building, construct a sea wall into the emergency flood pool area of the reservoir in order to accommodate the larger building without reducing size of the existing parking area, and enlarge and relocate the parking area.

The boat ramp at Indian Fort has been unusable since the 1990’s, as the river undercut the bank below the concrete ramp during high flows, causing it to buckle. Without a useable ramp at Indian Fort FAS, a boater launching upstream at Pelican FAS must travel 32 river miles downstream to Itch-Ke-Pe FAS to take out. Because of this failure, boaters with trailered boats have either avoided using Indian Fort FAS or used pioneered hand-launch sites on adjacent land not owned by FWP. Montana FWP would like to restore motorized boat access to the Yellowstone River at Indian Fort and proposes to remove and replace the existing unusable boat ramp.
Indian Fort FAS is an important point of access for the public to the Yellowstone River. The lack of a usable boat ramp at this FAS has forced the public to concentrate use at other FAS’ in the area and to pioneer boat launches on adjacent DNRC property. (Decision Notices - 03/20/2006)
This project would improve the infrastructure at Ulm Pishkun State Park by constructing a 1,200 square foot maintenance garage and expanding the visitor center parking area by 16,500 square feet. The total amount of land affected by these improvements would be approximately .60 acres. (Decision Notices - 03/20/2006)
In association with a series of recreational ponds to be constructed in the headwater springs of Sage Creek, an opportunity exists to install passage barriers to prevent nonnative fish from invading these new water, thereby creating a future opportunity to restore Yellowstone cutthroat trout to their native range. The Future Fisheries Improvement Program is proposing to provide partial funding for a project calling to install these passage barriers. The project site is located approximately fifteen miles south of the town of Pryor in Carbon County. (Draft Recommendations - 03/14/2006)
