Bass River Beach #485

View Larger Map

Town beach paved lot off South Street the mouth of Bass River. Fee charged in season, lot locked in season 10 p.m. – 8 a.m. Free and open all other times. Easy carry to launch area at paved ramp. This is a very popular and well used area with heavy boat traffic in the summer. If the prevailing southwest breezes of summer aren’t too strong, paddle out of the river and fish the flats outside for bass and bluefish. A long paddle inside Bass River can yield some excellent striper fishing but this is best done in the spring and fall when the boat traffic lessens. Upper Bass River is known as a good bet for holdover stripers in the winter, too.
