Observe one of nature’s fascinating spring rituals. Witness thousands of cinder worms as they wiggle their way to the surface performing their spring mating dance. Quietly wade the protected coves of Ninigret Pond on a warm spring evening. See the beauty of a sunset over tranquil water. Now listen to the sound of silence as it is interrupted by dozens of surface feeding stripers. Finally, fish for those stripers using the tiny cinder worm flies you tied yourself.

This isn’t some kind of fisherman’s dream, it’s a reality and it can happen to you. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in partnership with Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management’s Aquatic Resource Education program is organizing a Cinder Worm Workshop. There will be two weekday evening classes in fly tying instruction on cinder worm patterns and one weekend evening of fly fishing. “We would like to have everyone attend both workshops,” said David Pollack, one of the organizers of the program, “but you also have the option to pick just one.”

Introduction to practical rigging and casting instruction will be covered for those that need additional assistance. Fly fishers will then fish the coves of Grassy Point area of Ninigret National Wildlife Refuge. “We don’t guarantee the weather or the fish,” said Pollack, “but past experiences have shown that this is prime time for the worm mating season.”
The program is open to any adult or child over the age of 10, regardless of skill level. There is limited space with a 40 person maximum. Instruction and guidance will be provided by some of the area’s most knowledgeable worm fishermen. New this year will be an opportunity for kayak fishing - limited to experienced kayakers who have their own kayaks, equipped with required safety equipment and lights for kayaking after dark. Dave Pollack will lead that group.
For more information or to register, please contact Scott Travers at scott.travers@dem.ri.gov
.
All fly tying materials will be provided. Participants are encouraged to use their personal equipment, but RI Division of Fish & Wildlife’s Aquatic Resource Education program will also provide the necessary fishing and fly tying equipment (other than waders) for beginners and entry level registrants.

Default Re: Cinder Worm Workshop

That sounds great. Last year I was fishing in Ninigret Pond (Quonnie as well) over Memorial Day weekend. Didn't see any worms and didn't catch anything; supposedly it hadn't warmed enough yet (according to some locals who had also been skunked). Nevertheless, it was an excellent kayaking trip and we had a great time. This year we are going in mid-June (with my luck this year it will be be too warm).
