SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (7/24/2006)

Two recently renovated lakes will re-open to fishing at the McDuffie Public Fishing Area (PFA) on Saturday, July 29, 2006, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division (WRD). These lakes join four other PFA lakes that currently are open, and will remain open. These six lakes range in size from 8 acres to 37 acres and provide fishing for such species as largemouth bass, bluegill, redear sunfish and channel catfish.“In order to best manage the fish populations within these lakes that are set to re-open, WRD is setting a few limitations on only these two lakes,” says Ed Bettross, WRD Fisheries Biologist. “Fishing will only be allowed on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays of each week and on the larger of the two lakes, there will be no bass harvest allowed.” Both lakes have concrete boat ramps, service docks, earthen fishing piers and trash receptacles. The larger of the two lakes also has two handicapped accessible fishing stations. Current creel limits at McDuffie PFA are 15 bream, 5 channel catfish, 5 largemouth bass (bass mush be 14 inches long or longer before they may be taken) per person/per day. Anglers 16 years of age or older must possess both a fishing license and a wildlife management area license to fish. Senior (65+), Lifetime and Honorary License holders are not required to possess a WMA license to fish. If you possess a Sportsman's License or a 1-Day Fishing License, you are not required to possess a WMA license. The McDuffie PFA is a 570-acre tract located in Georgia’s upper coastal plain near Dearing and includes the PFA, a fish hatchery and the McDuffie Environmental Education Center. The area is open from official sunrise to sunset every day and also offers restrooms, numerous handicapped accessible fishing stations, picnic tables and pavilions, and tent and RV camping.
