North Little Rock will have a formal opening at 9 a.m. Wednesday of a new fishing pier extending into the Arkansas River from Burns Park.

It will be one of the few handicapped accessible places to fish on the main portion of the river and is touted as an “excellent fisheries resource.” The city built the $230,000 pier in cooperation with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, which is expected to add fish habitat beneath the bridge to increase the chances of success.

Now how about an artisanal fry wagon nearby to fry up fresh caught fish (no gar, thanks) and maybe a hush puppy or two. Is that legal?
