Default Help - Narragansett/Mt. Hope Bay terminology

Hey all,

I'm new to this area and been researching out the wahoo to learn more. However, I've come across some terms that I don't quite understand. If anyone could help me out that would be great.

Narragansett Bay: Does this include Mt. Hope Bay/Sakonnet River/Grenwich bay/etc all as one bay? Or are each places specific? I've talked to a few folks down at the marina, but when they mention the areas above and some of the lingo below, I'm too embarrassed to ask them what they mean.

Oceanfront: I've seen this quite a bit, and am assuming that it would be any shoreline facing the ocean. Correct?

Upper Bay: I see this loosely thrown around and want to know if this is the bay up near Providence river, Mt Hope bay/Taunton River. Or a combination of the two and upper is just that entire area in the waters between Tiverton and maybe Wickford.

I had a few others that I was able to research on my own and discover their meaning. ie. bunker/pogey/menhaden as just one example. Everyone calls them something different!!!

Thanks for any info on this! I'm just trying to be able to communicate properly with some of the folks I do end up talking with. Heck, it could help some others out too!

Tight lines!

Just Greenwich Bay is in the bay. All others are not.

Yes!

Upper Bay generally known north of Prudence Island/Patience at the gut between the two. Does not include the others you mentioned.

Nope! That's about it.
