Cape Hatteras National Seashore offers the angler a variety of excellent fishing opportunities. The best fishing is in the spring and fall but the earnest fisherman can easily find reward all year except January and February. Action during the middle of the summer is best offshore.
Many different types of fish can be taken from the surf, piers, and freshwater ponds as well as from boats in the inlets, the sound, and offshore in the Gulf Stream. You can go out on your own or check out one of our park concessionaires; the Avon pier for pier fishing or the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center for offshore fishing.
Enjoy your day fishing, just remember:
