SODA SPRINGS, Idaho -- Eight miles of the upper Blackfoot River will be opened to anglers after nearly a decade.

The Monsanto Co. in Soda Springs recently purchased the Fox Hills Ranch, a 2,200-acre property bounding the river, and announced it would increase public access for fishing. Dave Farnsworth with Monsanto said the company primarily wanted to keep the land from being subdivided. Access will be limited to foot traffic and drift boats.
