Rhode Island boasts ample fishing opportunities and, if you’re looking to explore them all, fishing in Narragansett Bay might be the adventure you need. This gorgeous bay is 26 miles long and brimming with game fish that make for an excellent opponent in the tug-of-war. Not to mention that most of them are also delicious, so it’s a win-win situation.

What can you target in Narragansett Bay? The locals come here for superb Bass action year-round – Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Striped Bass are all on the menu. Stripers in particular like to move around a lot, and you’ll have the best luck finding big ones in late spring, and sometimes in the fall.

While Bass are the frontrunners of the bay, Bluefish, Flounder (Fluke), Tautog, Black Seabass, and Scup are all there for the taking. You may even run into Little Tunny, Cod, and Bonito – it all depends on what fishing technique you prefer. Cod, Black Seabass, and Tautog are popular catches when you’re bottom fishing.

Not to much surprise, where there’s fish, there are fishing charters to take you to them. Guides on the bay usually offer a variety of trips and there’s something for everyone’s taste. From half day excursions well-suited for families, to full day options that are reserved for more experienced anglers, you’ll easily find something that suits you.

Visit Warwick, South Kingstown, Providence, or Narragansett and you’ll have a good choice of charters.

Rules & Regulations

When you decide to go fishing in Narragansett Bay, one of the first things you should think about is a fishing license. Most of the time, even if you’re fishing with a guide, you’ll need to buy a saltwater license before the trip. Some charters might provide it for you, so check with your captain what the process is.

January

The beginning of the year isn’t a good time to go fishing in the bay. It will probably be freezing on the water, and you won’t be allowed to target most of the species. Better to wait for warmer weather!

February

The waters are still not too friendly for fishermen, which is why locals don’t usually go fishing in Narragansett Bay in February. Maybe, if the day is unusually warm, there might be some Cod action.

March

It’s slowly getting warmer in Rhode Island, but the waters can still get quite choppy, and the wind chills are strong. Flounder season is officially open, and you can find good numbers of Cod out there.

April

Tautog season opens this month, the weather is improving every day, and that means a lot of fishing fights in your near future. Bottom fishing is very productive in April, and the Bass bite is also good.

May

May marks the beginning of the high fishing season on Narragansett Bay. You’re welcome to hit the water and target just about anything you fancy, including Stripers, Tautog, Bluefish, Cod, and more.

June

With summer right around the corner, you better believe that fishing is excellent on the bay. Catch Bass around rocks and ledges, or go after aggressive Bluefish, Black Seabass, and Fluke. The Tautog season is closed until August.

July

The middle of the summer is probably the best time to fish Narragansett Bay! Bluefishing is at its peak, as well as Bass fishing. Everything else, from Bonito, Cod, and Fluke to Black Seabass is out there for the taking.

August

It’s hot and muggy in the bay, but there’s nothing like some first-class fishing action to freshen you up. Bluefish, Bonito, Little Tunny, and Stripers are biting left and right, with other bottom dwellers following close behind.

September

The summer is slowly ending, the air is crisp, and fishing is fantastic. Bass can sometimes be elusive, but the hunt is worth the effort because there are some giants out there. Bluefishing is top-notch in September as well.

October

The cold front from the Atlantic is cooling down the temperatures and the water, so there’s a shift on the fishing front. Tautog, Cod, and Black Seabass take center stage, with plenty of Bluefish and Stripers still out there.

November

Most of the migratory fish aren’t very fond of cold waters, so they’ll be leaving the bay or simply becoming more apathetic. Thankfully, Black Bass and Tautog are still very hungry, and they’ll show you good times on the waves.

December

With the holiday season fast approaching, you’ll find fewer fish in the bay. It’s getting very cold outside, so going fishing in Narragansett Bay this time of year might not be the best decision. If you just have to scratch that itch, dress warmly and target Tautog and Cod.

Took my teen and adult daughters salt water fishing for the first time. Captain Spencer and the first mate made it a memorable experience. We caught fish, and had an incredible tour of the area. The crews knowledge of the waters can’t be beat. And they were hard working, clearly enjoying the day themselves, and were great conversationalists.

Had a great time with captain cook out on Narragansett bay. I got my wife to join me for her first trip out to do some bottom fishing and captain cook was amazing in helping her learn. She ended landing more scup than me and had a great time doing it. Thanks for a great time and we’ll be back in the future whenever we need to load up the freezer!

My two boys and I (and gramma) had a great time with Captain Cook! We caught at least 50 fish (11 doubles!) - mostly scup, but also several Black Sea bass, and even a puffer fish! We brought home 14 for dinner. What a great day on the water! Highly recommend

Captain Tom was first class from start to finish! His communication was excellent and was incredibly accommodating with bad weather that moved through just before we were to launch. His boat was impeccably clean and high tech! Captain Tom was professional, fantastic at finding fish, patient with the three of us, and we left with smiles, 4 different species of fish for dinner, and a fantastic day! We cannot recommend him enough! Thank you Captain Tom!!!

Great experience. I bought this charter as a birthday present for my 14 year old son. He and his friends had a great time. Captain Donald, did a good job keeping them engaged and giving them tips. He made sure they caught plenty of fish.
