Besides parking lots 2 & 3 being open, the refuge is also now issuing night time walk on fishing permits. That means that you have to be on the refuge before the gate closes at sunset. And then you can walk onto the beach from any of the open lots to fish for the evening. But, if you don’t make it before the gate closes you are out of luck. You can always get off, they have an electronic eye at the exit gate. So, Happy Fishing!
