Lake at Evans County
Evans County

Evans County Public Fishing Area is a 372-acre area that offers 3 different lakes for anglers to fish for Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, Brown Bullhead, Redear Sunfish, Channel Catfish, and Crappie. Lakes Longleaf, Wood and Bidd Sands attract more than 5,000 anglers each year with an additional almost 4,000 guests visiting the PFA. Bidd Sands Lake offers the best opportunities for anglers to get their hands on some bass in the upper end of the lake during the warmer months along with great hybrid bass. Lake Longleaf is best for Crappie halfway through November to March.

This PFA also offers opportunities for Quota and Youth waterfowl hunts. Please check the Hunting Regulations for more information.
