For, I'm Eric Granstrom. There's a winter closure of some land in the Winthrop area I thought you should know about after I received notice from the Department of Fish and Wildlife. The release reads as follows: "To protect the largest migratory mule deer herd in Washington, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is closing five units of the Methow Valley Wildlife Area to public access from Dec. 15 through March 31. Much of the Methow Wildlife Area land was acquired to conserve winter habitat for migrating deer. The temporary closure will protect crucial winter foraging habitat and support potential monitoring on the impacts of temporary recreation closures on winter deer use and movement. The five units listed for partial closure include Texas Creek, Golden Doe, Big Buck, Methow, and Rendezvous. Areas to be closed within those units will be clearly marked with signs and maps detailing the closure. The popular groomed trail system Methow Trails manages will not be impacted by this closure. These and other select areas will remain open to provide excellent fish and wildlife-related recreational experiences during the closure months." I thought you'd like to know. Until next time, Good Fishing!
