Acquisitions, Trades & Leases
In 2008, 4.8 acres of land along the Yellowstone River near Hysham was donated to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP) for the purpose of providing additional public access to the Yellowstone River and developing a fishing access site (FAS). FWP proposes to acquire a permanent right-of-way easement on 1.8 acres of accreted land located between the FAS and the Yellowstone River from the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC). FWP also proposes to develop the Amelia Island FAS and the accreted land adjacent to the FAS. Proposed developments include a designated parking area, a single-wide concrete boat ramp, a concrete vault latrine, informational signs, additional fencing, and improvements to the access road.
