Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks announced last week its intention to proceed with a plan to purchase nearly 15 acres for a fishing access site 1 mile east of Dayton along the western shore of Flathead Lake.

FWP accepted public input on the proposal for 30 days this summer as part of a draft environmental assessment of the project. Regional Supervisor Jim Williams signed the decision notice Sept. 4 to move forward with the proposal, which will go before the Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission for approval.

The property is owned by the Montana Outdoor Legacy Foundation. The plan includes an access road, parking area, boat launch, dock, vault latrine, signage, boundary fencing and host campsite. The site would be open for day-use only.
