Rhode Island Surf Stripers and Connecticut River Fly-Casting

Location: Beavertail Light, Rhode Island, and Connecticut River, New Hampshire
Time of Year:
Targeting: Stripers and Trout
Season:

On The Water’s Chris Megan hits the rocky shores of Beavertail Light with Rhode Island sharpie Steve McKenna for a lesson in rigging and casting Slug-Gos. As the light fades, a change in location puts the two surfcasters onto a wide-open bite, with one serious cow hitting the beach.

In the second half of this show, On The Water editor Gene Bourque teams up with contributing writer Paul DiNolo to explore the headwaters of the Connecticut river in the northernmost reaches of New Hampshire. Brilliantly colored trout and acrobatic salmon keep the day interesting as the two drift dry flies through pristine water.
