Obviously I know the major piers on the peninsula:
James River Bridge
Yorktown Pier (and Glouchester by extension)
and the new Buckroe Pier

But I've heard there are 3 or more in addition to these that are smaller (and require a seperate license). Can anyone give some information on these piers? Like where do you find them, what can you expect to catch there and what are the rules regarding them.

Here are the ones I've heard of but don't know how to find:
In newport news:
south of JRB, near the coal shipping (possibly in King Lincoln park)
On or near Denbigh road

In Yorktown:
Out near Seaford or Dare

In Hampton:
On Fort Monroe (can non-military get to it)
At the Monitor-Merrimac Overlook
And possibly one on the Hampton river (near downtown)

Are there more that I'm not aware of? Maybe some freshwater piers out on the lakes/reservoirs. How do you get to all of these and what are the fees/license requirements. Also, I've heard some are for crabbing only, so which ones?

Thanks for any help.

You have the one on the Warwick River at the end of Denbigh Road. Forget what it's called.
Back Creek in Seaford has a small pier for fishing, but you have to watch the boats.
Coast Guard base has a pier you can fish. Must have military ID.
Cheatham Annex has a pier as well you can fish. Must have military ID.
York River State Park near Croaker has a small pier.
16th Street in Hampton/Newport News.
King Lincoln Park does have a pier.
There is a pier behind Hilton Elementary School in Newport News.

I think a map is in order. So...

Local Piers
Some of the locations are only appoximate, so any help getting those nailed down would be good. Also I can add freshwater piers as we find them. By the way, green means public, red means military.
