Saltwater fishing, including crabbing, is allowed year-round in the tidal creeks and estuarine waters adjacent to the refuge.  Two fishing piers, located at the refuge entrance, are available to the public during daylight hours for fishing into Harris Neck Creek.  Access to refuge tidal waters can be gained from a public boat ramp located on the Barbour River.  Barbour River Landing is open daily from 4:00 AM to midnight, or as posted.

Fishing on the refuge is subject to all applicable Georgia state regulations, and a Georgia fishing license and Saltwater Information Program (SIP) permit are required.
