Default Need help with Boston Harbor Locations

Re:fly fisherman needs help with boston harbor locations
Hello to all,
My name is Joe K. I've been fly fishing for about 18 years. Primarily salt. I've fished all over the Bahamas for bone's and have been throwing to stripers on the flats from Barnstable to Brewster for years. I live about 30 minutes west of Boston and I would love to fish the harbor. The problem is I have no idea where to fish. Except for Castle Island. I've fished there the last two evenings (with the tide change) and have had no luck. Not even a hit. I need some help. Could anyone send suggestions with wadable locations and parking? I'd like nothing better than to be throwing flies to stripers with the greatest sky line in back of me. Please help. Thanks,
Joe

Joe,

Though I have never done it myself I see guys fly fishing Wollaston Beach all the time! Plenty of parking, if you drive to the very end there is a bridge and at low tide you can walk out or fish the tight channel. I have seen guys pulling in bass with flies many times.

Would this be my uncle Joe Keefe from Framingham by chance? If not, that is a very strange set of coincidences. If so (or if not) welcome to the site man. I had no idea you went to Boston to fish, I thought ya saved it for your trips down the Cape. Anyway welcome aboard man, can't wait to get back down the Cape and catch some cows.


Will

Will, yes it's your uncle Joe. I thought I'd try Boston since I'm only 35 min from some great spots. I spoke to a few guys who gave me some great advise. I can't wait to check them out. What is your screen name? Lets get back down and hunt some of those big fish.....
Joe
