**ST. TAMMANY FISHING PIER IS CLOSED FOR CONSTRUCTION UNTIL MID-JULY 2021.
The pier is now in Phase II of an expansion project that includes developing the western span of the old twin spans section of the Pier, currently closed to public use; shelter structures, cleaning stations and fishing platforms, as well as the installation of guardrails, and exterior lighting.
When the Pier Re-opens...
Spend a day off with the family making memories. Go solo and commune with nature, and bring home dinner. Pier fishing is easy at the St. Tammany Parish Fishing Pier. Catch redfish, spotted trout, sheepshead, flounder, drum, Atlantic croaker, blue crab and more, and clean them on the spot.
When the pier re-opens, operating hours will be 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., March to October. Fishing is free and open to the public.
Staffed by Parish Pier Patrol during operating hours, the St. Tammany Parish Fishing Pier has everything you need to hang a hook for a few hours and catch your limit, including fish cleaning tables, vending machines, restrooms and covered gazebos to get out of the sun. You'll need to bring a pole and a box to hold your catch, and have a valid fishing license, too.*
