The neighboring tracts of land are primarily farm land and timberland tracts, making this a game-rich environment.

The Tar River is known for not only its variety in fish species, including Striped Bass and American and Hickory Shad, but also the river bottom land provides ample cover and browse for a number of wild game species such as black bear, white-tail deer, and wild turkeys. The dense vegetation provides cover for deer and black bear and the tall trees that border the river attract wild turkeys for roosting trees.

The Tar River originates in the Piedmont and flows in a southeasterly direction for approximately 195 miles to Washington, where it becomes the Pamlico River. The river averages approximately 50 feet in width and 2 feet in depth in the upper reaches, while downstream it averages 160 feet in width and 15 feet in depth. The section of river between Rocky Mount and Old Sparta serves as an important spawning area for anadromous fish, including American shad, hickory shad, river herring and striped bass. Between Grimesland and Washington, fishing pressure for game fish is heavy and good catches of striped bass, largemouth bass, sunfish, and white and yellow perch are common.
Largemouth bass are abundant throughout the Tar River watershed and receive a great deal of fishing pressure during May and early June, which is the best time to fish for them. Sunfish (bluegill, redbreast, warmouth, flier and pumpkinseed) are also abundant in the river, especially in some of the larger tributary streams such as Tranters Creek, Swift Creek and Fishing Creek. The prime time to fish for sunfish is during the spring spawning period, April through May. Fishing for striped bass in the Tar River occurs from late March through early May, and is restricted to the main river below Rocky Mount. White perch can be taken in the river between Greenville and Washington. – https://www.ncwildlife.org/Fishing/Where-to-Fish/Fishing_Opps_in_the_Coastal_Region_of_NC
