Ri Bassing

Recommended Posts

Recently moved back to the area, and though its been a while since i have actively posted on this forum i have searched this forum and found little to no information regarding Rhode Island ponds and lakes.  Hoping there are some other local guys here and perhaps we can keep a thread going...

I've never seen anyone on here post about Rhode Island ponds or lakes. It seems as though no one fishes in RI. Sorry man wish I could help.

Give it some time.  They'll find you.  I fish primarily in Eastern MA towards Plymouth.  I have better luck in Plymouth, but the town just shut my favorite pond down to non-residents at 1700 hours.  

 

If you can't find what you need here, try RIFishfinder.com

There used to be a gang of guys from RI a few years ago.  Haven't seen a post from them in four or five years.

thanks guys, haven't checked this thread in a few days sorry! No time to get out recently anyways..Rhode island sucks though, complete lack of literature when it comes to bassing up here and I don't mean this board just generally very hard to find anything at all.

Have no fear, still one Rhode Islander here. What area are you in? What would you like to know?

My girlfriend is from there and says everyone she knows fishes saltwater. But looking at a map there is some water, so maybe you won't have any pressure to deal with.

Seems to me...and it's been a while...Slatersville Res in N. Smithfield and Watchaug in Charlestown were both  productive if you knew how to fish. I'm pretty sure that Wallum Lake is reciprocal both Ma. and R.I. but I'm not sure why you'd want to go there.

Appreciate the replies guys, i know its been a little while but i got tied up with real life and hadn't been checking in on the reg.  Took a trip out to Worden's pond on Friday the 4th but it was so windy we headed back in after an hour or so no luck.  2 big guys in a Crawdad and decent sized waves are not ideal.

I fish Rhode Island quite frequently actually, one of my fishing buddies lives down in the Narragansett/ Charlestown area. I've posted a few reports of my trips to Wordens pond in Wakefield in the "eastern MA fishing reports" thread as I'm from eastern MA and do the majority of my fishing there.

I have also fished watchaug numerous times this summer, that one is in Burlingame state park which is in Charlestown. Indian lake in Narragansett is also a nice little fishery, both watchaug and Indian have largemouth and smallmouth, Wordens doesn't have smallmouth but it does yield an occasional very nice northern pike. Barbers pond is another nice little manageable fishery in that same area of the state more or less (Rhode Island is small enough that anything is within reach)

Have also fished Tucker's pond in Wakefield with decent results. Let me know if you want any more info on any of these places, just thought I'd let you know most of the places I hit when I'm in the area. As others have stated there's also very good saltwater fishing in southern RI especially around reefs in the watch hill area and off of block island. If you don't own a boat surf casting is also very productive in many areas.

RI is a best kept secret... The bass fishing here is fantastic

if you know what you're doing. The wind on Wordens is out of the

South West almost all the time so fish that end of the lake

if you're in a small craft. You have to work the reeds and pads.

The only thing you'll catch in open water there is pick or pike.

Oh, check the weather conditions before you head out.

It will help you determine which lake to go to and what to plan on using.

The web is loaded with maps and information for all the lakes.

If you have a smart phone buy the Navionics boating app.

You will reap major benefits. Good Luck!

Im a RI'r and There are a lot of great spots to Bass Fish, my go to's are:

John L Curran Fishing Area, Stump Pond, Waterman Reservior, Olney Pond, Randal Pond, Watchaug Pond and surprisingly enough, Roger Williams Park.

Wordens is to windy for my small craft and Indian Lake is very shallow with tons of boulders so it can be tough to navigate.
