Town Neck Beach: End of Wood Avenue, paved town lot (daily fee charged in season, free and open all other times). Approx. 300-yard carry to water edge depending on tide. Three hours on either side of either side of high tide are best for fishing but strong tide is present; avoid mouth of estuary when strong onshore wind is present against outgoing tide due to high, dangerous surf. Excellent striper fishing can be found in the wide area inside the marsh at the top of the tide and fish move well inside as the tide rises. Boats and personal watercraft often traverse the estuary at high tide in the summer. Strong tides throughout, especially around periods of new and full moon.
