After a winter of numerous renovations, the Rodanthe Fishing Pier will reopen Saturday for the 2021 season, per a recent update.

We spent the winter doing extensive repairs to the existing pier – replacing deteriorated pilings, bolts, and structural timbers to make the pier safer and more sound,” said Terry Plumblee, pier owner and manager. “There will (also) be more benches for fishermen to relax on soon.”

Once open, the pier’s scheduled hours will be from 7 a.m. until dark.

The Rodanthe Pier will also have live music returning for the summer season, from Memorial Day through Labor Day, and likely on Thursdays and Wednesdays.
