The Westmoreland State Park Fishing Pier improvements were completed in 2001. The project received $20,000 from the VSRFDF. The ramp is handicapped accessible and is open to all Park users. This pier is NOT covered by a blanket pier license, so anglers, 16 and older, need to purchase their own saltwater fishing license (VA, PRFC, or MD). For licensing questions, you can review the PRFC website . Anglers fishing this pier often catch croaker, spot, white perch, and striped bass. The site is also a good spot for crabbing. The Park offers restroom facilities and a snack bar (seasonal). Boat ramps at the Park provide access to the upper and middle Potomac River.
