Not sure about the trailer but as far as walking out there - you can but it is a LONG way from any public parking area.
I believe this area is only accesible to folks with DOD stickersAnother spot is the WMA on the north end of the Hwy 172 New River bridge. Just make a right before the gate to base, there's a sign, at the end of the road there's a fishing pier and access to fish the plyons on the bridge.
There is no public parking on that road. There are no parking signs all down the end of river road once you make that last right. The only pubic parking is once you get onto the beach. I tried twice without putting it in 4x4 and it slowed down and started to spin both times. So I would say you need a 4x4 to get onto the beach.Ok thanks for the info but if i had to pull a beach cart out there? I was looking at the overhead pic and i see you would drive out straight from river road but i havnt the 4x4 (yet) where is the parking area? Hopefully at the end of river road before the engage 4X4 sign.
We don't use the term Topsail Sound that much - try searching on New River, Topsail Inlet, Rich's inlet, Virginia Creek, Surf City, 172 Bridge, High Rise Bridge, etc. While you won't find a thread like this one you will find a lot of good info. What kind of boat are you planning to use in the sounds?awesome thread, thank you so much. we recently purchased a home on topsail and cant wait to get to fishing! are there are quality topsail sound fishing threads? i couldn't find one. thanks!
Ah - that helps (we have a number of old towers). That's the south end of the island. Banks Channel runs behind the island in the area you are staying. The marsh areas between banks channel and the ICW have some cuts and channels in them - EXCELLENT spring fishing in there (early summer too). Then if you squirt out the end of Banks channel and head left 1n Topsail Channel and then on the right as you reach the the shoals - you are behind Lea Island, another good spot - it gets shallow in there but you can thread your way around - just don't get stuck in there on a falling tide.awesome thanks!
i should have specified...right near queens grant.
