Fulton Fishing Pier Update:

The New Fulton Fishing Pier Update is that it’s now complete, and open to the public. The official grand opening was on October 30th, 2021.


The pier has some new state-of-the-art LED fishing lights that illuminate water for greater visibility of fish below surface level.


You can go catch a few nice fish from the end of the pier. Anyone can walk down the pier without charge but if you’re looking for an even more interactive experience, bring your fishing pole to this magnificent structure!

You can now rent Fishing equipment at the pier. Just see the attendant on site and they will be able to hook you up with some gear.
