HERTFORD, N.C. (June 14, 2017) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, June 23 at 10:30 a.m. to celebrate the opening of the new Hertford boating access area located on Granby Street in Hertford.

The Hertford boating access area provides access to the Perquimans River. The access area features a 41-foot-wide concrete boat ramp and two 100-foot floating docks. It also features an asphalt parking lot, which includes 26 spaces for vehicles and trailers and four spaces for single cars, including two ADA-compliant spaces.

“That area of the Perquimans River gives anglers some great fishing opportunities,” said Katy Potoka, the Commission’s district 1 fishery biologist. “Boaters can expect to catch a wide variety of species such as sunfish, striped bass, largemouth bass, flounder and catfish.”

The project was funded with motorboat registration receipts and Sport Fish Restoration Program funds. The large boat ramp upgrade was funded by a Golden Leaf Foundation grant.
