The location of the fishing pier will be marked with a sign. 

This permanent location for the fishing pier was identified in the Lake Management Plan and the Low Water Amendment to the General Management Plan for Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife will begin stocking fish in the permanent location.
