Boat launch and dock improvements announced
New Fork Lake, Willow Lake, Half Moon, and Fremont Lake area work
by Bridger-Teton National Forest
May 18, 2021

The Bridger-Teton National Forest is advising visitors of temporary interruptions and suspensions of use of various boat docks while improvements are made. The Wyoming Game and Fish, Pinedale office plans to do the improvements to the boat launch and docks at New Fork Lake on May 18, 2021, Willow Lake on May 19, 2021, and Half Moon and Fremont Lake on May 20, 2021. A concrete slab will be poured at Half Moon Lake on June 1, 2021 and there will be a temporary 1-day closure at Half Moon Lake on June 8, 2021 as the concrete slab is put into place.

Half Moon Lake will get a new 8-foot by 20-foot dock with a 20-foot gangway. The old docks that are taken off the lake will be repurposed as fishing platforms at the Up Ice Pond in Evanston Wyoming.

Half Moon Lake will also get a 12-foot by 10-foot concrete slab poured on top of the already existing slab to improve boat launching activities. "The improvement of this ramp will require closing access to the launch for one day," said Pinedale Wilderness Manager, Jay Sammer. Signage will be in place to notify the public. "Also, the one parking spot down by the ramp at Half Moon Lake will be inaccessible for about 1-week while we get things staged," Sammer said.

The Bridger-Teton National Forest applauds the excellent work that Wyoming Game and Fish is doing to make hunting and fishing access better for all that travel through this amazing county.
