PINEDALE - The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has improved boating access at three locations on the New Fork River near Pinedale.

The agency says it's been working in recent months to improve boating access on the river.

The three improved locations are the Airport Public Access Area, 4 miles south of Pinedale; the East Fork Confluence access area 4 miles south of Boulder; and the Remmick access area about 4 river miles upstream from the Hwy 351 bridge.

At the Airport area, improvements include construction of a mile of new road, a parking lot and a primitive boat ramp. The project also involved the creation of new wetland areas to make up for wetlands lost in road construction.
