Fishing Pier

A handicap-accessible fishing pier is located near the picnic area. The pier was built in cooperation with NC Wildlife Resources Commission, Progress Energy and Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space.
New pier ready for installation!
We will be getting a new pier this May! Pier will not be accessible during a few weeks in May 2017 to replace the old pier with the new. Wildlife Resources Commission will provide specific dates of when the replacement will occur, and we will update this site!

The fishing pond is stocked with channel catfish once a month from May to September. The three-acre pond also contains largemouth bass, bluegill and redear sunfish.
All North Carolina fishing regulations apply. Please review our park rules to ensure an enjoyable experience for everyone!


Borrow a Fishing Pole (Tackle Loaner Program)

Wake County Parks and Recreation offers a Fishing Tackle Loaner program in partnership with the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission.
Register for the program by stopping by the park office and filling out an application. Once registered, you will be able to borrow a fishing rod equipped with hook, sinker and bobber. You will have to provide your own bait, so do not forget to bring those worms, grubs or bait of choice!

We are also proud to provide fishing equipment for fishermen with limited mobility. We have two closed-faced, battery-powered, spinning reels intended for one-handed use. Equipment is loaned out to registered participants at no cost. You can check the equipment out for the day. Contact the park office for further information on fishing equipment available for people with disabilities!
