Narragansett Bay reports

Jim Barr (FlyrodRI) reported - 3 - Fair fly fishing: Striped bass fishing in Rhode Island has started, but it continues to be a very slow start. Our water temperatures continue below the seasonal norm however several areas have enjoyed significant increases over the past week. Newport- 53.6 (up 3.5), Quonset Point-56.3 (up 5.3), Providence-61 (no change), Block Island-49.3 (up 3.3), New London-48 (up 1), Montauk 48 (no change), Eastern Long Island- 48, Central Long Island- 50.5 The following areas have had school bass activity as they did last week: Pawcatuck River in Westerly, RI - Cemetery and Hall Coves, West Wall in Galilee, Narrow River in Narragansett, Second Beach in Middletown, RI., East Greenwich Cove on the Goddard Park in Warwick, Chepiwanoxet Point in Warwick, Warren River in Barrington and Warren, RI., Bristol's Colt State Park at the Mill Gut. My general recommendation is to continue to search the coves, rivers and small streams that empty into upper Narragansett Bay. The upper bay water temperatures are around 61 F, a comfortable temperature for bass. There have been unsubstantiated reports of bass in both the east and west bay sections of Narragansett Bay. Cinder worms have begun to emerge in Ninigret Pond with some small bass taking them. This fishery will get better in the very near term providing we get a few more sunny days. Another report I read yesterday indicated some decent size bass being taken in Ninigret using subsurface patterns. Stay tuned to this report section as the Stripers should be begin showing in earnest inside Narragansett Bay in the very near term. (05/04/11)
Brian Patterson (fin deep) reported - 1 - Excellent fly fishing: Striped Bass are all over the bay. Bunker is getting thicker with the temperature rising. Large fly patterns with sinking lines are standard. Small fish are 29 inches and larger bass are caught up to 30 pounds! Temp today was 57 degrees in the main bay and 60 degrees in the rivers at high tide. Long slow retrieves seem to ignite the strikes the best. (05/21/09)
Brian Patterson (fin deep) reported - 2 - Good fly fishing: School size bass are here in full force and surface action has been consistent this past week. Look for the high tides and get out there. Decievers are working as well clousers. (05/14/09)
