Rhode Island Fishing Forecast

The early word from the fluke season has been encouraging, with quality keepers being taken throughout the region. Targeting larger fish may mean traveling a bit, but there seems to be plenty of keeper fish close to home at this point. The rivers and tributaries are still holding some heavy striped bass, and in the next week or so it would be a safe bet that some cows will be settling into their summer haunts on the reefs. For both species, being the first one to dial in a bite on a quality spot usually pays dividends, as you’ll have your pick of good fish before the crowds find them.
