Jiggs Landing on the Ever's Reservoir offers freshwater fishing and canoeing opportunities on the Evers Reservoir and Braden River. The property was purchased in 1944 by Al (Jiggs) and Agnes Metcalf and included a 7-acre piece of property. Their dream was to create a fish camp on the banks of the Braden River and they did so, creating a landmark that served Manatee County for more than 40 years.

Jiggs Landing is well known for its boat ramp which allows visitors to launch directly into the Braden River. The newly renovated site also has a number of new great features including: Picnic areas, Boardwalks, Concession stand, Wildlife viewing areas, Dock, and a Nature-themed Playground.

Since Jiggs Landing is a Preserve, you will see many protected species. There are owls, hawks, vultures, osprey and the occasional eagle. There are many other birds and plenty of alligators. The fishing is excellent, with bass being quit prevalent.  The sunsets can be quite spectacular also.
