17 May Saltwater Edge Fishing Report 5.16.14 – Wait for it
We have waited and we have been teased…
Finally keeper bass have returned to Newport and surrounding waters. We have reports of keeper bass in Buzzards Bay and MV as well. Upper Narragansett Bay herring runs are loaded any tide now and the bass should bump up to keeper size.
Fly guys have also seen the worm hatches commence all around the Ocean State and the bass have finally found them with the recent bump in water temperatures. Small flies do the trick most times; but be sure and have some pink and peach colored flies in addition to the common bright red. For the conventional fisherman standing in “worm hatch” unable to get a hit try one of the flies above and a casting egg.
