Fish, Wildlife and Parks has written a draft environmental assessment outlining proposed construction to improve Pelican fishing access site on the Yellowstone River, 10 miles southeast of Big Timber.
Proposed improvements include a new camping area with approximately five designated campsites with tables and fire rings; a gravel access road connecting the existing access road and the camping area; a loop access road through the camping area; an enlarged and improved parking area along the existing loop road to accommodate 12 to 15 truck/trailer vehicles; new fencing around the camping area and along the river; rehabilitating and re-vegetating the recently closed eastern access road; and re-seeding the pioneered two-track roads and campsites.
A copy of the document can be found online. For more information or to comment contact Cleve Schuster at 247-2964 or Ken Frazer at 247-2961.
Written comments should be addressed to: Pelican FAS Proposed Improvement Project, Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, 2300 Lake Elmo Drive, Billings, MT 59105. All comments must be received by June 30.
