Seven-mile Slough Access on the Payette River WMA Remains Closed

While waterfowl hunting season opens this weekend across southwest Idaho, one popular access site along the lower Payette River remains closed.

Seven-mile Slough Access Site, part of the Payette River Wildlife Management Area, remains closed while construction crews wrap up site renovation. Once complete, Seven-mile will have a gravel parking area, restroom and a concrete boat ramp.

Seven-mile Slough is located at the corner of Cascade Road and Star Lane, west of Emmett, Idaho.

Weather permitting, renovation should be complete and the site open around October 23rd.
