FISHING/BOATING -- Part of the parking area for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Heller Bar water access site to the Snake River in Asotin County will be closed for re-grading and graveling starting today.
The boat launch will remain open, but the restricted parking will continue least through the end of the month, officials say.
Vehicle parking is available in another part of the site, as well as at parking sites along the nearby Grand Ronde River.
The work is the first step in an overall revision of the site to allow better access to the river by various users. The Heller Bar access site is south of the town of Asotin, just above the mouth of the Grand Ronde River.
