Moving to the Boston Area

Recommended Posts

We are moving to the Boston area after Christmas and I am just wanting to know what are some of the best lakes for fishing.  From shore and boat.

Thanks, :)

Some of the lakes in and around Plymouth were real good when I lived out there, but I cant remember the names sorry.  But, a great time can be had fishing for Stiper and Cod in Hull, Ma.  Its the southern most point of the harbor, and the striper runs are fantasic in spring and fall. Also, dogfish and blues can be caught.

Check with some local bait & tackle shops. They have a wealth of information available for you. If local lakes don't produce for you, "Head West Young Man, Head West!" :) We have a fine, huge reservoir, right in the middle of the state - the Quabbin Reservoir. However, there are some boating restrictions there. They also rent boats (very reasonable) and there's plenty of shoreline access.

The Quabbin is one of the best smallmouth fisheries in the northeast. Plenty of lakers, salmon and rainbow as well there. A very clear, deep reservoir, about 19 miles long and about 6 miles wide.

You might also want to think about joining a local fishing forum to supplement the info you'll glean from here. MassAnglers is a fine one: www.maanglers.com.

I've heard a lot about the great fishing around the eastern end of the state, but haven't had the opportunity to get much further east than the Worchester area.

I fished a tournament on the Charles river last summer. It was interesting fishing though headway speed throughout. Don't think that there are many fish bigger than 3lbs but could be wrong. A steady stream of cute joggers passing through broke up the day :)
