Sixteenmile Creek Fishing Access Site

Decision Notices


The enclosed Decision Notice has been prepared for the Sixteenmile Creek Fishing Access Site. The notice proposes to acquire 89.16 acres of land along a five-mile stretch of abandoned Milwaukee Railroad right-of-way approximately one mile west of Highway 89 and one-half mile west of Ringling, Montana, for the purpose of developing a day use fishing access site (FAS) on Sixteenmile Creek. FWP also proposes to construct a parking area for approximately eight vehicles at the eastern end of the property, an access road to and fencing around the parking area, installation of a vault latrine, and directional and informational signs. One hundred forty-six public comments were received during the June 30 to July 30, 2010, and April 1 to April 30, 2012, comment periods. It is my decision to proceed with the proposed project, with no changes to the Draft EA.
