Description

The Fort Flagler Fishing Reef is an interesting artificial reef made of concrete slabs that have ben stacked up 3'-5' from a flat sandy bottom and house lingcod, greenling and sculpin and large schools of rockfish and perch. The reef begins straight out from the entry point at the end of the road (easy to locate from boat too by looking at the shore). Swim to about 45', if you have not encountered a pile or the rope then turn south and keep the same depth. The piles are located closely together and run for a few hundred feet. Expect to see lots of fish plus critters expected to be found in the sand.

Special Restrictions:

Beware of current and fishing line. This makes a pleasant boat drift dive.

How to get there:

Located on the east side of Marrowstone Island (connected by land bridge to Indian Island) in Fort Flagler State Park. The site was once referred to as the Fort Flagler Fishing Pier but the pier and pilings have been removed leaving only the artificial reef. By car, navigate to Indian Island and over to Fort Flagler. Work you way to the east shore and follow Marrowstone Point Dr south to the parking lot at the end. there beach access from this lot. The reef lies directly out from this entry point in 40-50' deep and the piles are connected by a rope making navigation very easy.
