FISHING  One of the premier Stripped Bass fishing areas on the East Coast, recent Army Corp of Engineer work has broken Sandy Point (a barrier island) into two pieces which has increased salinity and ocean water exchange at the mouth of Pawcatuck River. The Salt Flats between Napatree Point and Sandy Point have increased in size, creating an ideal nursery for baitfish growth. These shoals offer ideal wading for fly fisherman when the larger predatory fish come to feed. The sandy shoals also are home to numerous mussel and sea clam beds. Schools of Whitefish/ Smelt (Shiners ), Sand Eels, Menhaden (Bunker), and Eels are abundant. As the tide changes and flushes these baitfish out into the ocean there are numerous barrier reefs (Sugar Reef and Lords Passage) which are noted Fly fishing hot spots. Albacore, False Albacore, Stripped Bass, Bluefish, Halibut, Porgies and Black fish all are caught off these shores. If you don\'t have a boat they can also be caught from shore or Charter boats.
