Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area will re-open Rushing Bay, Duncan Bay, Duncan Lake, Smith Bay, Fulton/Honker Bay, Honker Lake Refuge, Long Creek Waterfowl Refuge, and portions of Energy Lake on March 16. Hematite Lake will also be open March 16 for bank fishing only.

“These areas are closed November 1 through March 15, primarily as waterfowl and eagle refuges. We appreciate public cooperation in protecting these important areas for wildlife,” said Steve Bloemer, LBL’s Wildlife Program Manager. “The majority of wintering eagles and waterfowl will begin migrating back north by early to mid-March, permitting the refuges to be re-opened.”

Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area is managed by the Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and provides outdoor recreation, lake access, and environmental education for the public to enjoy.
