THREE RIVERS AND HONOBIA CREEK WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREAS OFFER ANGLERS A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE

Sportsmen looking for a fantastic and rugged place to fish should look no further than Three Rivers and Honobia Creek Wildlife Management Areas. With more than 100 miles of creeks and rivers and another 100 small ponds, there are plenty of fishing opportunities available for anglers on either WMA. Dakota Christian, Wildlife Department biologist for those areas, encourages anglers to experience the unique fishing opportunities these areas provide. “You won’t find a fishing experience quite like this anywhere else,” Christian said.

Most ponds on the WMA are a half-acre or less in size and many have been stocked with fish over the years. Surveys have shown that nearly every pond offers fishing for bass, sunfish, and channel catfish. In some ponds, largemouths in excess of five pounds have been caught. “Anglers can take advantage of the short hike to some ponds that are just off the road, or for the more adventurous, use a virtual map like Google Earth to seek out hidden gems,” Christian said. He even provided coordinates for multiple ponds on both areas (see below).

An added bonus to pond fishing on the WMAs is the chance to fish the rivers that flow through the areas. In fact, Three Rivers WMA obtained its name because there are three rivers that run through it; the Glover River, the Mountain Fork, and the Little River. Today, Anglers have the option of fishing from the banks or by wading, tubing, or canoeing over 40 miles of great river fishing.
