Long Description:
This historic dock dates back to George Washington's day.
The city dock is home to many different things over the years. The "City of Fredericksburg" Paddle Cruise boat docks here during the summer months. Directly across the river is Ferry Farms, where George Washington grew up. The site is where one of the Federal pontoon bridges was constructed under heavy weapons fire in December 1862. Today the dock is used as a recreation point for many locals. Fishing is a favorite past-time off the dock. The dock is free to the general public and is enjoyed by many. Please be aware that the water currents are strong in this area of the river. Swimming from the dock is not encouraged.
Recommended fishing methods:
Most people bottom fish with moderately heavy sinkers. On an out going tide the current is strong. In the spring a good location to throw Shad Darts.
