Caption: Fishing on Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is evidently good....for otters! A large bowfin is quite a haul for the otter shown below. This is a big one that didn't get away.
Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge is one of nine national wildlife refuges in the Coastal North Carolina National Wildlife Refuges Complex. Pocosin Lakes Visitor Center, located in Columbia, NC, is open 9am to 4pm whenever volunteer staffing is available.
