Grand Opening and fishing at Hard labor Creek Reservoir delayed

Hard Labor Creek Reservoir was scheduled to open to the public for fishing this month, but officials say that weather has delayed it.

This bass was caught, and returned to Hard Labor Creek Reservoir in September, 2017. Mylinda Knittel, Spring Street Studios.

“The grand opening of Hard Labor Creek Reservoir has been delayed due to recent inclement weather and cold temperatures that have prevented the pouring of concrete,” Walton County public information officer Diane Baggett said in a press release. “Construction on the boat ramp and other facilities is now expected to be completed in late January or early February.”

Baggett said updates will be provided as they become available. For more information on the fishing that will be available, click or tap on this link for the latest issue of Walton Living Magazine.
