Default Advice on Buzzards Bay /Cape Cod MA fishing spots

Visiting relatives in Bourne MA in early-mid October. Closest beach is Monument.

I was told the canal is not the best place to fly fish. Any other recommendations for a close place?

All information greatly appreciated.

Here's a good spot, right in your neighborhood.

Edit.....Ooops, too much information. Sent you a Google map PM

The town beach near the creeks in Sandwich along with the inlets to the saltponds in Falmouth would be good choices too

Sxm-

Good luck-- I'm sure Riptide gave you great info.

Just wanted to chime in with a caution about the surf--- it's been very wild this week with a very experienced surf fishermen swept off the bar off Sandwich MA and drowning-- and his buddy who tried to rescue him luckily saved just before hypothermia set in by boaters.

Here on LI, guys have been getting dumped all week just standing in water knee deep, after having sand scooped sand out from under them by the undertow, and a very experienced (and well known) fly fishing guide just had his boat swamped and capsized by a rogue wave off Montauk Point outside of the breakers. Luckily, all stuck with the boat as it was carried to shore. The surf has been very unpredictable and treacherous this week.

This week's conditions are caused by distance tropical storms that are affecting the whole NE seaboard--- so despite beautiful bluebird skies, make sure you double and triple check for surf advisories and be aware of tides and moon phases before you head out each day-- or night.

You might also consider wearing an inflatable or self inflating pfd of you're going to be wading.

Good luck--- have a great--- and safe trip. Looking forward to a great report!

Yeah, that's the place I'm talking about.
No surf to speak of there though, just some strong current due to a large tidal exchange draining the marsh
This guy obviously wasn't wearing a wading belt

Fisherman dies near Sandwich, Mass.

Bizarre what happened to Paul Dixon though

Yes, i wasn't there when it happened but talked to a couple guys that saw it-- apparently he was outside of the surf zone, out beyond the breakers and wave came over the stern filling the boat with water, and then another came along and flipped the boat.

He's very experienced and has been fishing out there for years and knows how treacherous it can be--- not sure whether he ran into mechanical difficulties and the engine conked out, got caught by a rogue, or just got a little a distracted-- bass to 35" or so were blitzing all over the place. Unlike a lot of the fly boats out there that get between the surfcasters and fish, he's always been very respectful of the surf fishermen out there and can't imaging that he was in too tight anywhere inside the surf zone. There are a lot of knuckleheads out there, but he isn't one of them.

Luckily he and his clients just got wet and a little banged up-- it could have been much worse.
