PINE BLUFF — Contractors with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission will refurbish the public fishing pier on Lake Saracen beginning April 15.

The project is expected to last two to three weeks, and access to the fishing pier will be closed during that time. For more than 30 years, the ADA-compliant fishing pier has provided anglers in Pine Bluff with the increased opportunity to access fish that are further from shore without the need for long casts. It includes a 200-foot boardwalk, safety railings and interior fishing stations to allow mobility-impaired individuals and younger anglers the opportunity to fish as well. The cost of the project is estimated at $30,000.
