PITTSBORO, N.C. (Aug. 7, 2012) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission re-opened the Bells Church Public Fishing Area pier today.

Commission personnel closed the fishing pier, which is located at 1126 Farrington Road in Apex, on July 30 so that ongoing repairs to the pier could be completed.

The pier is the Wildlife Commission’s largest fishing pier, extending 139 feet into the lake and measuring 80 feet across at the end of the pier. It is also the only Wildlife Commission pier with LED nighttime fishing lights, which attract insects and baitfish to the pier.

For more information on fishing in public, inland waters visit the Commission’s fishing page or call the Division of Inland Fisheries, 919-707-0220.
