Georgias Evans Public Fishing Area To Reopen June 1
The Evans County Public Fishing Area will re-open on June 1, 2013, after completion of a year's long project.

"All of the needed work at Bidd Sands Lake, the 84-acre impoundment, at Evans County is complete," says John Biagi, fisheries chief of the Wildlife Resources Division, Georgia Department of Natural Resources. "We are excited to re-open this area to the public and make a favorite local fishing spot available once again."

Evans County PFA, located east of Claxton, Georgia, is a 372-acre area that includes three separate impoundments. The area boasts concrete boat ramps with courtesy docks, fishing piers, primitive camp sites, boardwalk nature trail, restrooms and picnic tables. This PFA also is home to alligator and waterfowl hunts.

SPECIAL NOTE! In addition to June 1 being the first day Evans PFA is re-opened, it is even more special as it is a FREE fishing day in Georgia!
