For many years, West End enjoyed a very actively used and substantially sized fishing pier that extended out into the Lake and provided access to its bountiful fish stocks. Unfortunately, Hurricane Katrina completely destroyed this prized asset, but it has not been forgotten.
Positive developments are coming. FEMA has agreed to pay for the replacement of this fishing pier, and it will be rebuilt on the north face of Breakwater Drive.
Demolition of the old fishing pier was completed in 2015.
