Surf Fishing Report:
The wind is 12 this morning and the water temp is 72 degrees. Water is still rough.
Drum fishing is good with a few Spot and Bluefish thrown in. Considering the piers are slaying the Drum this morning, I would say all surf fishermen should be hitting the beaches.
Our fall fishermen with ORV’s are arriving every day. Here is the information you ask for.
To begin with, take your tires down to 25 lbs. You can drive in Corolla north and south of the gate in off season, starting Oct 1st. You cannot drive in Kitty Hawk or Southern Shores at anytime. You can drive in KDH from Oct to May the 1st. You can drive on the beach in Nags Head from Oct to May if you purchase a Nags Head sticker for $25.00. But you can’t drive all of Nags Head so watch your signs on the beach. You can drive our National Parks if you have a permit. A yearly permit is $120.00 and weekly is $50.00.

Daily access to beach areas within Cape Hatteras National
