    Fishing Captain, Cast a Fly Charters
  1. There is shore access by car at Fort Adams via road along the left side of the park. It's a popular destination for shore bound anglers. Take a look at Price Neck. There's parking there and plenty of rocks to throw plugs. You might encounter some heavy surf and slippery rocks. Sachuest Point - Plenty of parking, walking paths lead around the peninsular. One side fishes the Atlantic, the other Sakonnet. Brenton's Break wall at the beginning of Ocean Drive. Check out Fishing New England, a Rhode Island Shore Guide by Gene Bourque of On the Water fame.
  2. This fish report blog was created as a communal gathering place to share and report weekly fishing activity that could benefit those you use the RI forum. The purpose is to blend together all reports in a portal so they are easy to access into one file for ease of viewing. This is the second year trying this approach of a journal . I think last year had great participation. Now it's up to you to post your success or skunks. Either way let us know. It all helps us to be informed. More hot weather coming this week. Already into the mid week of July. Summers going fast. Keep those reports coming, good or bad. We'd like to hear.
  3. I'd think about an 18 footer. It's all purpose, safe size, will get you on the ocean too, plus you can still trailer with a 6 cylinder. Any boat after that, you'd need an 8 cylinder. You should be able to 3-4 miles a gallon.
  4. Monday, July 29
  5. Pick a weekday, give me several dates to chose just incase I have bookings. I'll see, Much better to launch a boat. Let me know?
  6. Dead seal washed up on the shore of Fort Adams today. Looks like a boat might have hit it.
  7. It was one of those days? You hear that phrase often, especially after fishing trips. The meaning sounds ambiguous, cryptic in nature. It does have a hollow ring of negative connotation attached to it. But I wish I had more of these days like we had today. Mike Testa and Dave Pollack had the best fishing trip of the season. Everything was aligned today. The rollers, wind, tide, surface texture, temperature, clear water, everything was perfect. We had a 40 plus fish day today and I’m under estimating the totals. Ironically we found no concentrated of bait supplies, no birds searching, diving, nothing! How can that be? We managed four species, stripers, bluefish, sea bass, and scup on a fly out at Block Island this morning. We made great time out to the fishing grounds on flat seas and dense fog. Electronics today are unbelievable how they make it safe to maneuver in dense fog? You really need radar out there. How fast the fog rolls in? We found the mother lode. Stripers held on station for hours on end. The never seemed to move off station where we were fishing. There were so aggressive coming and hitting the fly. We had packs of fish following a hooked fish most of the time. I lost count how many doubles. Once we found them all stripers. Dave Pollack had the biggest at 34 inches. If you look closely at the picture, it’s almost looks like Dave grabbed it out of the glove compartment. Mike Testa had a beauty too caught the Grand Slam with four different species.

There's been a heat wave and that has effected us fishing. Already well in July and fishing has been way off. It's a sign of the times. You put in lots of time with poor results, but we still like to get out on the water regardless. Keep those reports coming, good or bad. We'd like to hear.
  9. Rhody Fly Rodders is the oldest saltwater fly fishing club in the nation, some 56 years now. If you look back in the history of saltwater fly fishing, many of us pioneered the flies, techniques, equipment. We have open fishing nights during the summer. Anyone can come. Open to the public. I'd recommend you going to one of these open fishing nights. Bring your waders, equipment. They will give you advise and knowledge. You're in luck... July 11th Rhody meets at Narrow River parking area at the Sprague Bridge off Route 1A. Be there at 5:00pm or any time after.
  10. No one touched upon the fact, there are specific locations where the time of the tide has to be at a certain height to be deemed wade able. That's a major factor with a few wading locations in Rhode Island. I'm sure many other places too. Take the Cape sandbars as an example. Upper bay tide rises can be 9-12 feet in height. It might be the last hour before or after an ebb tide that you may be able to get to your location, otherwise it's too deep. I've wade fish the Seekonk River for decades. In order to catch schoolies you have to get your fly out to the edge of the shipping channel. You can not reach the channel with a fly cast unless the tide is at least half way down to walk out.
  11. I had these great guys fly fishing from New Jersey for two straight days. Tuesday out at Block on a fly 30 fish day, a bag of stripers, five lbs. blues, giant scup, and black sea bass. Wednesday, off Newport, seven smaller schoolies, three scup, and one nice 8 lb. tautog.

The biggest vacation week of the year. Time to get to the coast and shot a line, get out with the warmer weather. Keep those reports coming, good or bad. We'd like to hear. Have a firecracker of a week.
  13. The more pollution the better fishing believe it or not. All that organic matter is a food supply for the lower forms.
  14. I'm willing to try again. The idea was tossed around last year like a snow ball. Never picked up speed enough to make a snowman.
