The waters surrounding Watch Hill, Rhode Island and Mystic, Connecticut make for one of the finest fishing spots on the entire Atlantic shoreline. This is the place where the fertile
estuarine flow of Long Island Sound meets the open ocean and extreme reefs of rock and kelp and powerful gamefish. Major forage species like alewives, squid and menhaden spawn in Long Island,
Fishers Island and Block Island Sounds, leaving both adult and juvenile species at the mercy of the swift flows found at The Race and the Watch Hill Reefs.
Watch Hill fishes well all season - various baits, blitzing bass and blues and several pelagic species can be found in abundance from May through November. You'd be hard-pressed to find an area in the northeastern states, never mind New England, where such a potpourri of life brews day-in, day out like the Watch Hill and Fishers Island area.
