Definitely an option. Like the idea of "dry fly" fishing for large saltwater species? Cinder worm hatch is about as close as you will get. Liz and I will be fishing it as much as possible in May and in to the first week or so in June.

The nice thing about the saltwater license is it will be good for MA and RI and is cheap, about $10 for non residents I believe.

Hi All,

I've had a look at the Mass Gov, Fishing Licence requirements, can anyone confirm if it is the "Non-Resident Citizen/Alien Freshwater Fishing for $37.50 that I require.

Also, when I get to the fishing, is the access to rivers and waters controlled by local fishing clubs, like it is in UK where I need a day ticket from a club. Or is the water free to use as long as public access is available.

Welcome any replies.

Yup, the $37.50 is good for the full season, but you could also purchase the "3 day" at $23.50 if that would suit your needs. You'd have to choose the three consecutive days in advance, however.
Public water is just that and any club controlled water is rare and will be well marked. Private land is often open too and if it's not it is usually "posted" .

Woodriver....The Mass marine license is not only good in Mass and RI but in CT and NH as well. I'm not sure how reciprocal the Maine license is but the one that I bought last year was all of a dollar

Hi Lankster,

Spend the extra 20 bucks (OK, $14 dollars US and about 9 pounds sterling) and don't restrict yourself to any 3 day period for goodness sake! Heck, a cheap lunch and a pint will cost about the same . Additionally, I would be willing to bet that any saltwater fishing that you do will not require any special access as it will most likely be with another forum member or well known public water.

Just thinking out loud.

I'm surprised the Swift River hasn't come up (there's another thread on it) - if you are looking for a couple hours away from the city, it shouldn't be missed. But, you will have some company.

Where are people hitting the worm hatch? I'm planning to get another rod thi year and haven't decided on a salt water rod or a 2 wt for smaller fish, this would be a great time to get a salt rod though. I went to the Watertown dam as the herring are running, my friend said he caught a schoolie a couple of days ago, but my experience yesterday was unfortunately not so great. You'll probably accidentally snag a herring right through the back, they're so thick, but the striper this year (and in recent years) seems to have been pretty thin.

I am looking for Trout fishing, rivers preferred within about a 2-3hr drive max from Boston area.

Also, any ideas on what permits/licences I may need or any regulations I need to know about.

I'm guessing the fishing would be good at end of May.

Any ideas/tips/locations very welcome.!
Hi Lankster,
