This is a Rhode Island coastal fishing report
While traveling along the beaches of RI coastline , it is apparent the fall migration is in full swing. Stripers are feeding from Newport to Narragansett. Shore fisherman can connect with stripers most anywhere, Point Judith , to Watch Hill RI, the beaches have schools of feeding bass ,and bluefish. Diving birds and schools of feeding fish can be found most anywhere. Most action can be found along the many salt ponds and river openings. Water temp has steadily dropped below 60 degrees, and the bait fish are on the move. Stripers and bluefish are on the feed, most stripers are school size with some reports of bigger fish.
.. With the volume of bait, along the ocean state should bring an outstanding fall run. There's still time to go fishing. I'll be out again soon with my report. Until then tight lines.
