Along the South Arm of the Fraser River

Along the North Arm of the Fraser River

  • No. 7 Road Pier - a restored former barge-loading pier with an open grass area and small beach.
  • Mitchell Island Pier - once part of a Vancouver-to-Richmond rail bridge, the old pier provides yesteryear reminders of local industry as well as expansive views across the river to the fringes of Vancouver.

Fishing licenses are required to fish from the Fraser River's edge at all times, including off of any pier, dock or float. For more information on fishing and boating in Richmond, visit the City of Richmond’s website.
