Edmonds’ Fishing Pier Ribbon CuttingDate: January 26, 2017, 10 a.m.
Location: Edmonds Pier, 200 Admiral Way
Grant Description: The Department of Fish and Wildlife used four grants to build and improve the Edmonds Pier on Puget Sound. The pier was built in 1977 and was the first publicly funded pier dedicated to recreational fishing in the state. The pier is a popular and rare asset for boatless anglers and the public. The pier was rusted and damaged by saltwater. Work included restoring the concrete cover, repairing the deck, fixing the wind shelter, replacing the roof on the fish cleaning station, and repairing the hand rail, signs, and electrical outlets. The department lowered the height of the deck railings to comply with accessibility requirements too. The pier is popular for catching squid and crab, fishing for salmon, and just enjoying the view.
