Newport Landing and Davey’s Locker have partnered with the city of Newport Beach to install five fishing line receptacles on the Balboa Pier to stop fishing lines, hooks and gear from staying in the water and entangling marine life and birds.
Fath and Oelkers, who have been fishing on the pier for over 80 years, said they were happy the receptacle are finally here. They have been asking for them for years they said.
