Summary

According to the agency website: "The Basherkill Fishing Platform allows casting access right at the water control structure for the "Basha Kill" wetland, where it flows into the Basher Kill (stream). The actual water level difference here is approximately 6". The Pine Kill (a quality small wild trout stream) enters via a braided channel both above and below this structure, depending on flow conditions. The Pine Kill MAY contribute some early season wild trout (primarily brown trout) to the receiving Basher Kill/Basha Kill WMA, where they will survive until the receiving water warms up in the summer."
