Most of Sherman Creek Wildlife
Area closed due to wildfire

Public access is closed to most of the Sherman Creek Wildlife Area in northeast Washington’s Ferry County due to the 500-acre Bisbee Mountain wildfire burning in the area.

Bisbee Mountain Road and Trout Lake Road, the main access points to the wildlife area, are closed until further notice.

The nearly 10,000-acre wildlife area west of Kettle Falls along Lake Roosevelt is managed by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) for hunting, fishing, and wildlife viewing.

The fire began Sept. 9 on the wildlife area. The Washington Department of Natural Resources is investigating the cause of the blaze.

See http://www.inciweb.org/incident/497/ for updates on the fire and access restrictions.
