Back River is the second river you cross from the mainland on the F.J. Torras Causeway toward St. Simons Island. There is no fishing off of the first bridge. Heading east, you can pull off to the right side (south side) of the causeway, then follow the access road underneath the causeway to the north side. Once on the north side, park and walk onto remnants of an older causeway bridge that has been removed, leaving behind a small pier. You can also access the Back River Fishing Pier if you are coming from St. Simons Island heading west toward the mainland. This pier is a popular location for crabbing, positioned just north of St. Simons Sound which funnels sea life into Back River with the tides.
