GFP To Host Open House at Roy Lake to Discuss Property Trade

Roy Lake State Park, S.D.—The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks
Department will be hosting an open house to discuss a possible
property trade that would open up access to Piyas Lake in
Northeastern South Dakota.

The open house will be held from 4-7 p.m. Monday, January 12 at
Roykota Resort.  No formal presentation will be made, but the open
house meeting format will provide an opportunity for the public to
visit one-on-one with staff and share their thoughts about the
merits of the proposal.

Piyas Lake, located in Marshall County, has seen heavy fishing
pressure the past two years, but has little access to sportsmen. 
The GFP has a proposal that would trade a parcel of land near Roy
Lake, for access to Piyas Lake.  Along with lake access, the GFP
would acquire CRP, an existing boat ramp, boat trailer parking, a
graveled trail to the lake, and several acres of marsh and water. 
In exchange for the Piyas Lake property, the GFP would trade 226
acres of Department lands located adjacent to the southeast corner
of Roy Lake.
