End of Portanimicut Road, South Orleans. Limited parking, small town owned lot, paved, free. Easy carry to launch at adjacent beach. This is the upper area of the huge Pleasant Bay watershed (Little Pleasant Bay). Protected water, moderate boat traffic in the summer. Fishing for stripers can be excellent in this area, especially on the flats around the small islands and behind the barrier beach. Fishes best in the early and late season with early morning and evening most productive. This is also a beautiful area for kayaking with classic views of the bay and the outer barrier beach. Beaching your kayak and wade fishing the flats behind the barrier beach can be very productive.
