 Boulder Beach Fishing Pier Re-Opened May 21, 2013.

BOULDER CITY, Nev. - Repairs to the fishing pier located at Boulder Beach are complete, and it has been repositioned back out on the water at Lake Mead.

The pier, a popular destination for anglers, was temporarily pulled out of the water in March because vandalism made it unsafe for visitors.

Popular fish found at Lake Mead NRA include largemouth bass, rainbow trout, striped bass, black crappie, channel catfish and bluegill. For more information about fishing at Lake Mead NRA, visit http://www.nps.gov/lake/planyourvisit/fishing.htm.
