My tips of the week
Large schools of peanut bunker have been seen pushed up on shore. So tan/white flies in an oblong profile about 3" should be a good bet.

Fishing conditions: The striped bass bite continues to be productive with lots of smaller fish hanging around all throughout Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay. Best bets for Albies from shore come from the south side of the Cape, with Albie Whores still being the top fly. The state has done excellent job of stocking trout in the kettle ponds. The stocking report continues to be updated daily so check the state website daily. Simple flies such as wooly buggers should continue to be effective until the end of November.

Cape Cod Buzzard Bay Description

The beautiful and productive waters of Buzzard Bay run from the west end of the Cape Cod Canal in Bourne, near the Massachusetts Maritime Academy westward to Falmouth and the Elizabeth Islands. This unique and varied body of water includes the deep water channel of the Cape Cod Canal, numerous estuaries, flats and back bays. The diversified bottom structures include sandy drop-offs, bolder strewn edges, eel ...

Techniques & Tips

For Albies looking for birds crashing bait. Striped bass and bluefish have infiltrated all of the estuaries and bays once again so any beach close to an inlet should be productive. Look for dead bait on the shore. For kettle pond trout, 5x tippet should suffice. The fish usually hang close to the boat ramp where they were stocked for at least a week or 2 so start there.

7-Day Forecast

Fishing should continue to be good for the next week. ~anthony lombardo
