Sommers popular Green River Access will be better next summer.

Pinedale - One of Pinedale's popular public access points for fishing and boating on the Green River will be improved in 2019. The Sommers Public Access Area, on land owned by Wyoming State Legislator Albert Sommers west of Pinedale, has suffered significant bank erosion that was causing the perimeter fence to fall into the river. Pinedale Habitat & Access crew member Daniel Pinneo removed the caving chain-link fence along the river's edge. Also, Pinedale Aquatic Habitat Biologist Luke Schultz and Fisheries Technician Erik Waring recently surveyed the area for plans to install a "J-hook" structure above the boat pull-out and toe-wood structures to stabilize the eroding bank. The in-stream "J-hook" rock structure to be installed next spring will provide a covenient eddy for boaters to safely reach the shoreline, while also providing improved habitat for fish. The Pinedale Game and Fish Habitat & Access crew will be using excavators to make improvements to the eroding bank and existing boat ramp.
