    Default Cinderworm Workshop



    The Cinder Worm Program is on again.
    Register Now! Applications taken for students & mentors
    Charlestown, Rhode Island

    For the past two years now, Capt. Ray Stachelek and Dave Pollack have been facilitating this program, with the US Fish & Wildlife and RIDEM. The first two nights are devoted to tying cinder worm emergence patterns. One Saturday afternoon/evening is devoted to fishing them. Many of you have already participated as students and/or instructors.

    We are doing it again in the spring of 2011. Fly tying will be on two consecutive Monday nights at the USF&W Kettle Pond Nature Center. Fishing will be on Saturday at Ninigret Park. We provide all necessary fly tying tools, materials, and fly rod outfits as needed.

    Fly Tying: Mondays May 2nd and May 9th
    Fishing: Saturday, May 14th

    Every year there is a waiting list for new students. The class enrollment is 40 students.

    Looking for instructors, our student to teacher ratio ideally would be 4-1.

    Pre-registration is required.

    For further information and registration contact:
    Janis Nepshinsky at 401-364-9124, ext. 28 or

    These things can be a pain in the you know what!! I have been sitting on a pier at night, listening to what sounded like thousands of bass just slurp them. I think I caught 4 little fish all night
    Do not tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, dont tell them where they know the fish.

    Good chance that it's shrimp that they're popping on this time of year, and there's a crab "hatch" in August that will drive you nutz.
    They're tiny, like 14s

    Riptide, how are you making out right now? With all of the sand eels around, it has been tough. I surf cast but know guys tossing flies for the stripers are having a rough time right now as well.

    Summer's here, the water has warmed, and the migration is over.
    There's still some sight fishing on the flats (crab flies), but night time fishing is becoming the rule.
    There's plenty of bait around, but with the constantly changing wind direction and weather conditions, the bait and the fish that follow them move and are hard to find.
    The fact that the striper population has dropped 70% since 2004 doesn't help either.
