The Bonner Bridge Pier is now open.. The old catwalk was removed and the existing south portion of the roadway is now the pier. The old roadway now part of the Bonner Bridge Pier extends approximately 100 yards north towards the Oregon Inlet. The old bridge bases were left in place and provide excellent safety for local and migrating species.
There is plenty of parking on the south side of the Bonner Bridge pier – the entrance to the parking lot is at the south end of the new Marc Basnight bridge and on the east side of the NC 12.
The fishing area is just north of the parking area. There are no lights. The area has several portable toilets.
At the entrance to the pier area there is a sign that indicates the requirements for the use of this pier.
Anglers will need a saltwater fishing license to fish here.
