Saxis Fishing Pier


The Saxis fishing pier was completed in 2002.  The project received $148,141 in VSRFDF grant funds.  The pier extends 200 feet into Saxis Harbor and terminates with a 100-foot T-head.  The pier is handicapped accessible and ADA compliant.  The pier is lit and is open 24 hours a day.  There is no fee to use the pier and public parking is allowed along the seawall. However, a valid individual Saltwater Recreational Fishing License is required.  Fish such as gray trout, croaker, spot , whiting, red drum, and striped bass can be caught at this site.  It is a popular location and the location of an annual kids fishing tournament that is also funded by the VSRFDF.


The pier is located in the Town of Saxis in Accomack County.

From N/S US Route 13 on the Eastern Shore of Virginia at Temperanceville:  Take Route 695 east toward Saxis (approximately 9 miles). Route 695 makes a sharp left as you approach the water and continues winding through the town.  The pier is located on the right-hand side about a mile into the main part of town.
