New Fishing Access Site Near Deal on Yellowstone
By Jackalope Jordan
The purchase of 15 acres along the Yellowstone River adjacent to Billings’ Riverfront Park has neared completion.
Once acquired the land would provide river access for fishing and a new boat ramp, Montana Untamed reported.
The new access site would break up what is currently a lengthy float between access sites. The negotiated price sits at $207,000 but will be closer to $225,000 once all the fees related to the transaction are added. Up to $200,000 will also be spent on developing the property.
Montana Untamed reported Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks previously attempted buying the property in 2011 but was unsuccessful.
