Avalon Fishing Pier
Avalon Fishing Pier is located in Kill Devil Hills on the Outer Banks of North Carolina around Milepost 6. Built in the 1950’s, this 696 foot long pier is very popular among locals. It provides excellent fishing and outstanding ocean views. The pier also provides a bait and tackle shop selling bloodworms, squid, mullet, shrimp and artificial lures and renting tackle. The pier is usually open from 5:00 am until 2:00 am during the summer months. Visitors do not need to have a salt water fishing license since the pier already owns one. However, you do need one to fish off the beach. During Super Storm Sandy, parts of the Avalon pier fell into the ocean. The main building leading to the pier did remain intact.
