Parker River Refuge Drive-on Fishing Permits. Random Drawing!

2011 Drive-on Fishing Season
.
Drive-on access will be via BB-1 only.
BB-2 will be closed.
.
Vehicles will be required to be off the beach when predicted high tides and storm tides will create conditions leaving little or no useable beach. The MBBA Beach Rep for Plum Island will have the authority to require all permitted users to vacate the beach at such times, and must notify the Refuge Manager the dates and durations such self imposed closure occurs within 12 hours.
.
Access will be from BB-1 south to a point yet to be determined (as of 7/28/2011) but is expected to be between mile 3.0 and 4.0. The southern limit will be signed and posted.
