WASHINGTON, N.C. (May 27, 2016) — The N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission has completed renovations and reopened the Masons Landing boating access area located at 625 Clarks Neck Road in Washington in Beaufort County.

Mason’s Landing provides access to Tranters Creek, which connects to the Pamlico-Tar River. The access area features two 15-foot-wide concrete boat ramps, three 60-foot floating docks and an asphalt parking lot. The parking lot includes 36 spaces for vehicles and trailers and six spaces for single cars, including three ADA-compliant spaces.

The Wildlife Commission funded construction of the project with motorboat registration receipts and Sport Fish Restoration Program funds.

“Mason’s Landing gives anglers some great fishing opportunities,” said Kyle Rachels, the Commission’s district assistant fisheries biologist. “Boaters can expect to catch a wide variety of species such as sunfish, striped bass, bluegill, catfish and largemouth bass.”
