The 2023 Fall Edmonds Fishing Pier underwater scuba maintenance event will take place Sunday, Oct. 8 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Emerald Sea Dive Club, led by Matthew Shawhan, will lead a 30-person team of volunteer underwater scuba divers to remove and clean the debris underneath the Edmonds Fishing Pier.

A tent located next to the pier visitor station will display a community give-back of any valuables found during the previous event last spring. Fishing gear, hooks and fishing lures are the most common items to be given away at that time. There will also be a volunteer sign-up sheet for anyone interested in contributing their time to pick up litter along the shoreline. Matthew Shawhan will be at the tent display to answer any questions during this event.

To ensure the safety of the underwater scuba diver teams, portions of the pier will be closed as follows:

  • Southern half of the fishing pier: closed from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • Northern half of the fishing pier: closed from 2-4 p.m.

Note that closure times are approximate.

  1. I wonder how many of those buzz bomb lures will be on their second or third round trip in the clean up? Seriously; great fun project for the pier fishing community.
