Water Authority to hold first fishing tournament March 29



  The Cubihatcha Outdoor Education Center will be hosting its first fishing tournament fundraiser on Saturday March 29, from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, at the Long Branch/Rowland Reservoir. 

  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Henry County Outdoor Education Partnership, a local 501 C-3 established in 2003 by the Henry County Water Authority (HCWA), the Henry County Board of Education, the Board of Commissioners, and several other public and private organizations, to provide outdoor education programming for students and adults.

  The adult/youth fishing tournament will test the skill of local anglers fishing for bass and crappie on the 277-acre lake, which is one of five reservoirs within the network of HCWA water resources used for drinking water production. 

  The fishing tournament is open to Henry County residents and property owners, as well as Water Authority customers.  A team entering the tournament must consist of one child, between the ages of 6 and 17, and an adult.  The cost of the event is $50 dollars per team, with first, second, and third place prizes being awarded for the largest catches of the day.  All teams must fish from boats, since no fishing from the reservoir banks will be permitted during the tournament.

  The Cubihatcha Center, which the HCWA opened in 1999, encompasses 1,000 acres of land designated as protected green space and wetlands mitigation.  “Cubihatcha” – meaning “the land between the lakes” – is appropriately named, as the Center is located between the Authority’s Long Branch and Towaliga Reservoirs. 

  The Cubihatcha Center welcomes thousands of visitors each year for opportunities of recreation and outdoor education, enhanced by amenities that include two walking trails, outdoor pavilions for group outings and field trips, as well as the Reservoirs Office of Henry County Water.

  For more information on the fishing tournament, including applications for entry, anglers can contact the Cubihatcha Center at 678-583-3930, or email Jeff Scott at
