A few acres of BLM land popular with anglers on the Eagle River, near the confluence with Travis Creek, is one of two parcels in Eagle County that the federal government has proposed to transfer to the Colorado State Land Board to settle a 143-year-old debt.

The federal government wants to settle a 143-year-old debt to Colorado with a grant of 9,900 acres across 16 counties. Some of those grants would block access to hunting, fishing on adjacent BLM land.
