Cape Cod - Buzzard Bay Area, Massachusetts Fly Fishing Reports & Conditions
My tips of the week
I love a good book, whether e book or print. Lately i've been reading a book called "Flies for Connecticut Atlantic Salmon, How to Tie and Fish Them" by Ben Bilello. I can honestly say its the best book i've come across on fly fishing for land locked / brood stock salmon. Its wonderfully written and masterfully photographed and illustrated. Check it out in the itunes bookstore or on Ben's site in PDF format. ~anthony lombardo

Orvis-Endorsed guides nearby:

Fishing conditions: Salt water fishing has come to an end, unless you know where to find the holdover stripers. The Fall stocking for trout has ceased. It seems not many fish were stocked this fall so the ones that are around got educated pretty fast. Use light tippet with small flies and fish the low light hours. Now that the colder weather is upon us fishing will be limited to the deepest kettle ponds or warm weather stretches. Expand your horizons, now is a great time to take you saltwater 8 weights and head to Western New York for steelhead. ~anthony lombardo

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 kettle pond trout, 6x/7x might be necessary now. The trout that are still around will be away from the stocking points by now. Fish the drop-offs, peninsulas, and submerged structure. Look for rising fish around sunrise and sunset. Check the forcast closely, expect skim ice this time of year everywhere in the mornings when temps drop below 20 at night. ~anthony lombardo

7-Day Forecast

Winter is here. Ice is everywhere except the deepest kettle ponds and tailwaters. Look for warm mornings to be most productive. ~anthony lombardo
