FWP proposes new fishing site

Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks is proposing the development of a new fishing access site on the Beaverhead River adjacent to the Selway Bridge. For some time, this property on the north side of Dillon has been used by the public to access the river without formal roads or a true boat ramp causing damage to the resource.

To move forward on the project, FWP would need to acquire a recreational use permit from the Montana Department of Transportation, which owns the land. Once the permit is secured, FWP will work in cooperation with the Beaverhead Trails Coalition to improve and maintain the site. These partnerships are already in place.

The proposed project would include re-grading a pioneered loop road, creating formal parking spaces, and reclaiming other pioneered areas of the site.

Public comment will be accepted by 5 p.m. April 4. Comments may be emailed to or sent to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks, Selway Bridge Fishing Access Site, Attn: Ray Heagney, 1400 S. 19th Ave., Bozeman, Montana, 59718.

Bozeman, Montana, 59718.

The fourth six-week grading period ends March 13, and report cards will be given to students at school on March 15. If there are questions or a problem, parents are urged to take advantage of parent/teacher conference night to confer with teachers, counselors, administrators, or other school personnel.

Butte High School students will attend school that day.

Butte Central Elementary School, 1100 Delaware, will host an open house from 5:15 to 7 p.m. Thursday, March 15.

Interested parents can meet faculty, staff and administrators. They can also check out the classrooms, the new technology being used in the classrooms, the new technology lab, and the newly-installed safety doors and security system.
