Going to New England in June?

My wife and I are taking a trip out to New England this summer. I have a former college buddy in the Boston Area. One of the days I wanted to take a day trip and go fishing. Anyone know a good place within say three to four hours of the big city?

When is the summer? Lots of great options for Stripers. Do you have a sense of time? Do you know where in Boston? How far would you be wiling to drive? Are you exclusive to just fly fishing? Wading, Boat? Guides? You might even want to consider chasing tuna, but the chances on the fly is very low, but you never really know.

June is great for bass all over. A trip to Brewster/Nauset on the cape can be very productive sight fishing. RI and Buzzards Bay is great that time of year as well. North (Cape Ann, my area) has great estuary fishing then as well. Really, you can't go wrong...

If you're interested in a guide, PM me. A buddy of mine specializes in large bass on the fly.

What are you looking to fish for? Fresh or salt? Good trout and LL salmon water is about a three hour drive of Boston in northern New Hampshire and western Maine. Good luck to you wherever you end up.

Worm hatch

Rhode Island's salt ponds have a freakin wicked worm hatch in the late afternoon that time of year. Not-for-nothin, but it's a pissa of a good time. Closest thing to dry fly saltwater fishing there is.

A buddy, Jim Barr (pronounced Bah) guides the hatch. Skinny Water Charters is the name of his business out of Newport. Spend the day in Newport. See all that beautiful place, have him pick you up, drive you over, catch 50 strippers (yes strippers) and then go to a late supper with the Mrs. Romantic night except for the slime on your arms and the cuts on your hands from lipping the bad boys.

Going to Bahsten the same time, and I'm on a train to Providence with a smile on my face...

Just saying. Google it. It's cool.

in NH would offer some good small mouth fishing with a fly rod at that time. However use of a boat would be required. Also many streams and ponds would offer fly fishing for trout, but don't expect to catch a lot of record size.
A further drive would take you to northern NH to the Connecticut lakes region that might offer some good river, and stream trout fishing.
Myself, I will be heading to Canada with the double hander for Atlantics.
life is good!

You can catch a lot of fish, and you can keep a lot of fish. But you can't do both very long. Jim Timmins

As evidenced by the variety of replies June's an excellent time to visit.

What do you want to fish for? June is prime time for trout/landlocked Atlantic salmon, smallmouths, and stripers. If you want to narrow it down a bit, drop me a PM and I'll share what I know.
