In Charleston, you’ll find an excellent fishing spot called Ninigret Pond that is known for its plentiful supply of striped bass. Also called Charlestown Pond, this is the place to go to catch a wide variety of game fish. You can also find shellfish here, such as clams, quahogs, blue crabs, eel, and bay scallops. You’ll find public access at Charlestown Breachway. You can get out on the water using one of the two marinas located at the pond. If you enjoy fishing for stripers with a fly rod, head over in late April and early May right after the Cinder Worm hatch. The best spot for fly fishing is on the southern end. Inside the channel on the eastern corner, you can catch bass and bluefish. The biggest fish here tend to hide in the shallows of Ninigret Pond’s many coves and twists.
