The Mount Vernon Public Boat Ramp on the Mobile River will temporarily close for repairs beginning June 22, 2020. During the closure, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’ (ADCNR) Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division (WFF) will remove silt from the launching basin to allow for easier boating access during periods of low water. The facility will remain closed for approximately two to three weeks until the project is completed.
For more information and the locations of alternate WFF public boating access areas, please visit http://boatramps.dcnr.alabama.gov/ or call the WFF Fisheries Section at (334) 242-3471.
Funding for this project was provided through the Sport Fish Restoration Program, which is supported through excise taxes on the sale of outboard motor fuel, fishing equipment, and the sale of Alabama fishing licenses.
The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources promotes wise stewardship, management and enjoyment of Alabama’s natural resources through four divisions: Marine Resources, State Lands, State Parks, and Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.
