This one’s going to be brief, folks, because I have nothing good to report. Well, that’s not entirely true. I got to meet up with old striper partner-in-crime Bob. We each enjoyed a cigar on the walk out. And I got to shake some of the rust off my two-handed casting. Beyond that, it was cold, the wind was blasting out of the east at 15mph (with higher gusts), it rained most of the time we fished, seaweed and grassy detritus was an issue, and neither of us got a single touch. I saw one striper caught by a spin angler. I talked to another fly angler in the parking lot who said he caught two small fish, and that it had been fairly slow thus far. I wish I could tell tales of the Bass-O-Matic, but that will have to wait for another day.
My spots in RHody need several more days
Good health is true wealth
The fish are here — they live here year round — this was simply a matter of a cold front and dwindling numbers.
Hi Steve I was wonder what flies you use when you fish for stock fish.
Hi Dan, are you talking about stocked trout or did you mean standard-issue early season stripers?
