The Sterling Ranch has historically allowed public access for anglers through their property. FWP proposes to develop two of the more heavily impacted access points on the Missouri river into Fishing Access Sites (FAS). These two sites are commonly referred to as Lone Tree and the Bull Pasture. Development at the proposed Lone Tree FAS would include installing a vault latrine, a regulation sign, improving the trail or adding stairs down to the river, and improving the parking area. Development at the proposed Bull Pasture FAS would include improving the gravel entrance road, reclaiming existing roads and approaches at the site, constructing a parking area, installing a vault latrine, a regulation sign, and construction of a new fence with a gate and pedestrian passthrough.
