From NY State Parks Department:

 

"Jones Beach West End Area: We will be opening West End 2 and the work dock area to fisherman beginning tomorrow morning.  They will have 24 hour access as they have in the past.  We are in the process of setting a parking area up on the west side of the West End 2 parking field."

 

Discussions are ongoing with the federal government about what can be done about gaining some access at Demo...more to follow.

Thank you!  What about fishing on the rocks there?  Will they leave you alone if you have korkers on at least?  At least we can get back to WE2.

Due to the recent death of an angler on the jetty you can expect increased enforcement during inclement weather.

arent we supposed to lose WE2 anyway? Wind farm nonsense or something?

I represent the NYCRF on the Fishing Advisory Board. We have been assured on multiple occasions by NY State Parks that fishing access will not be impacted at WE2.

Very nice job of working with the powers that be to reach a desired conclusion.

 

Despite what some people often try to have us believe, dedicated people taking thoughtful action can make a difference.

What’s the deal with demo? Some momo was guarding it at 12am

 

I heard Demo was closed due to piping plover nest on entrance road.
