Default Striper fishing

I'll be heading to the Cape Cod area next week to fly fish for stripers. I am totally new to saltwater flyfishing so any information would be very helpful. I have tied up some fairly proven striper flies and will be taking my 8 wt outfit.

Sounds like you have it covered. Stripers can be picky sometimes, but not often. Now, all you have to do is find some fish & get a fly in front of them!

Thanks for the reply Bigjim. If we can find some fish I feel pretty confident that I can put a fly in front of them. I'm pretty pumped about catching my first striper on a fly.

What part of the Cape are you headed to ?
I know the outer Cape (Chatham/Brewster to P-town) pretty well. I can help you access a number of locations and offer a few tips.
If you're going to be out that far, PM me and I'll help you out.

I was actually fishing Morris Island in the Monomoy area at the time of your post yesterday. Will be heading home today. Conditions were very tough yesterday with the sustained winds between 15 and 20 mph. There were not many fish caught yesterday in that area due to the rough conditions.

Morris Island is a good spot to fish on a moon tide

Nice fish Rip Tide. Well, it was a moon tide but I was really having a lot of difficulty punching a cast into a 20 mph wind. Thanks for all of your help. We fished many different areas and we didn't slay them but we did catch some decent fish and had a blast! I learned a ton about saltwater flyfishing and will definitely go back for another try. Thanks again.

The wind is often an issue that needs to be dealt with on the Cape. I mentioned that in my PM to you.
Fortunately there's fishing opportunities in all 4 compass directions. They're not all created equal, but some days you take what you can get.
