Watch hill lighthouse

I used to park in that big (church?) lot up the hill a bit.  Then walk down the trail to a heavenly beach with peanut bunker shooting out of the top of every cresting wave. Bass and blues, Mullet swimming by our feet in schools in 5” of water.  Was just one of the best experiences of my life. Peaceful yet full of life and just sugar under my feet.

I have never parked there; always at the shopping center.  always after hours.

In general with most coastal towns, things get tense and "tickety" between Memorial and Labor days.

Not worth taking any chances in summer.

Most cops understand fisherman are not bottle-breaking teeenagers and are cool.

But if wealthy landowners and town council tell them to get heavy, they will.

In other places when there's some question, I have put a message on my dashboard "Fishing: Please call (my number) if there are issues and I will respond immediately"

they definitely ticket and tow, don't park down there. 

 

its going to get a lot  worse now that the town lost a court case about parking, gonna be looking for payback. 

i heard the same thing

not worth it

was down there scouting few weeks back and cop making rounds

- had a nice chat but cautioned that parking enforcement would be increasing

especially out of state plates

plenty of other better places to fish

Agreed on the better fishing. I've caught there but it never panned out as planned.

can be great at times (as is the case with any where really), but to your point, it might be the most overrated spot in RI.

Plus, when I go fishing I like to know that my car will be there when I return . Watch hill is an okay spot but the parking situation is a big turn off. There are much better spots where parking is not a problem

I've had a rent-a-cop stop me as I was driving down the road.....  apparently employed by the property owners. 

I tried the "I got little kids" line but was told to go screw-  ever since I park on the road during the offseason.  I don't bother during the summer-  place is packed with beach goers
