End of Bridge Street. Small parking area, fee may be charged in the summer, free and open all other times. Easy carry (at high tide) to launch area from beach. This Cape Cod Bay side location can be an excellent bet for striper fishing at times but because of the expansive sand flats in the Bay, time your excursion to coincide with the three hour period on either side of high tide. As with many Cape Cod Bay side locations the fish will move in with the rising tide and retreat to deeper water as the tide drops. Just to the north is the expansive Herring Brook marsh and fishing the mouth at the top of the tide can be very productive. Strong winds can make paddling problematic in the Bay but relatively calm conditions are common. May and June are prime fishing months but stripers will be present on the flats through the season.
