PHOENIX, August 22, 2017—  A fishing pier is now open to the public as of August 21, 2017, at the Boulder recreation site.

Located in the Tonto National Forest’s Canyon Lake, the Boulder recreation site is 15 miles northeast of Apache Junction on State Route 88.

The pier is the culmination of a joint effort between the Forest Service, the Arizona Game and Fish Department and Canyon Lake Marina to remove the original, 20+-year-old pier damaged by storms in the summer of 2015 and replace it with a modern pier.

Funding for the pier came from Forest Service fees collected at developed recreation sites, such as picnic areas, campgrounds and boat launch areas.
