Albany-- By month's end, a favorite fishing spot in Albany will look much different. Georgia Power is making improvements to the Flint River Dam in Albany. A new fishing platform is being built, along with a parking lot and bathrooms.

Plant Mitchell Manager Bill Mashburn says, "Especially in the spring, a lot of fishermen a good fishing area for sport fisherman in Albany, especially bass in the spring."

The Muckafoonee dam is also getting a new fishing platform. The project is part of a licensing agreement between Georgia Power and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The project will be complete by February first.
