Cape Cod??

Heading to the Cape on 8/13 to do a week's worth of renovations to my sister's place. Wondering if anyone has any thoughts to share about fishing opportunities at this time of year, salt or fresh. Have canoe, will travel.
Thanks,
Gary

where on the Cape? The Commercial season is just winding down, signs of fall are showing here on the North Shore. You have some different options, from either striped bass fishing, or go Tuna fishing. The stripers would be more geared to fly fishing, the tuna fishing would be far from fly fishing, but could be real fun if that is what your looking for.....

I'll be staying in Yarmouth. Looking for wade fishing (with the fly) opportunities.
Thanks,
Gary

Fish (walk and wade) any of the estuary areas, river mouths, and beaches, particularly on the south side. Tides can matter though as long as water is moving you have a reasonable shot at finding fish. Concentrate on first and last light, or better yet if you are comfortable fish in the dark. You may be surprised! Good luck. If you bring your canoe, there are lots of great trout ponds, though the fish will be deep as the water temps are high now. An hour before sunrise you will probably find a few fish rising, so drift fishing with midges and dries can be very productive.
Call Chris at Fishing the Cape flyshop on Rt 28 in Harwich (Dennisport line), he really knows his stuff.

I would follow Joiner 's suggestions...I havent been in a long time, but off chatham there used to a very reasonable shuttle service out to monomoy island. Again I havent fished it in a while, and I think with the new cut could be good. You would need to be pretty aware of the tides and flats, but it would be great sight cast fishing. I would check around for more info, but it is the kinda place you could go and fish and be perfectly fine not catching a fish.
