PITTSBORO, N.C. (Feb. 21, 2011) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has re-opened the pier at Bells Church Public Fishing Area after staff completed repairs to a broken hinge yesterday.


Commission personnel closed the public fishing area, which is located on Jordan Lake in Chatham County, last week after being notified that the hinge connecting the first and second sections of the pier had broken, due to damage most likely sustained from high winds earlier in the week. 


For more information on fishing in public, inland waters visit the Commission’s Web site, www.ncwildlife.org or call the Division of Inland Fisheries, (919) 707-0220.
