Because of the rising waters, you can now access this area by boat. Because this area is a national wildlife refuge, you are NOT ALLOWED to fish in these waters. Please see the attached map for more information. The US Fish and Wildlife are working on placing buoys to warn anglers and boaters of this area. Please be advise of this area that is not permitted for open-water fishing. See map
