This pier is the northernmost oceanfront pier in the state and sits in one of the state’s most beautiful settings. Just a short drive north of Eureka, the pier gets steady if not necessarily heavy use by pier anglers. Most anglers come for the seasonal salmon and bottom fishing (including some big lings up by Redding Rock) which is available from skiffs and party boats. However, excellent fishing is also available in the nearby surf for redtail perch and smelt, while coastal lagoons offer a relaxed environment with plentiful trout.
Primarily daylight hours although there is a large light which is turned on in the summer months.
Restrooms are between the parking lot and the pier. Free parking is adjacent to the pier. The Seascape Restaurant is located at the foot of the pier. A small bait shop, Bob’s Boat Basin Bait and Tackle, is located at the foot of the pier. It carries tackle and bait but for the most part it is for the boat angler, i.e. salmon fishermen. It is open full time only during the summer months. Another bait and tackle shop is located next to the entrance of town, on the left side as you enter from Highway 101. This is Salty’s Bait and Tackle; it carries a full line of bait and tackle for all forms of fishing and is open year round. Both are open full time only during the summer months so you may want to call ahead or bring your own bait – Bob’s Bait and Tackle (707-677-3625), Salty’s Bait and Tackle (707-677-3874).
