Anglers fishing the end of the pier on Saturday

Dave Beebe received a lot of calls last week asking if the Cape Henlopen State Park fishing pier was open.  Due to the end of the pier being closed, and some media hype, many thought the entire pier was closed.  It wasn’t and is not.  Now the end of the pier has been restored to a short fence and you can fish the old structure out front.

One of the reasons to remove the old decking and pier on the end was due to safety concerns.  A few people decided to hop the fence and parks had to take action to prevent that from happening.

So the pier is open, the shop Lighthouse View Bait and Tackle is open.
