For, I'm Eric Granstrom. The Department of Fish and Wildlife is looking for your input on several land transactions the state is trying to accomplish. One of which is in Douglas County that's Phase 4 of the Big Bend Project. The acquisition proposed is up to 3,425 acres in two separate worksites at the edge of the Big Bend Wildlife Area and adjacent to the Columbia River. According to the Department, objectives include the protection of Sharp-tailed grouse, Washington ground squirrel, and golden eagle, as well as the protection and rehabilitation of shrubsteppe and riparian habitats. Recreational opportunities include excellent mule deer and upland bird hunting as well as opportunities for turkey and waterfowl. The site will also provide 1.76 miles of shoreline on the Columbia River with excellent areas for fishing. This is one of 15 proposed public land acquisitions that would help promote fish and wildlife conservation and public access to the great outdoors. There's a link on our Facebook page of this report ( to learn more information about the proposed 12,500-acres of land to be acquired in 14-counties statewide. Comments are being accepted through November 21st. Until next time, Good Fishing!
