RHODE ISLAND

Good People - Good Water - Good Fish

I arrive in the Wood River Area, Rhode Island, around 5:00 pm after catching trout in New Jersey and Connecticut early in the day.  I decided I had time to set up my tent at Whispering Pines Campground, then quickly run out and try the famous Wood River.  

 

After looking at the map and feeling fatigued, I would try a smaller feeder stream, the Flat River in the Beach Pond Forest Environment Site area (41.5941, -71.72033).  I arrived at the creek traveling on a dirt forest road.  Trilled, I spotted a trout regulation sign on the bridge.  Leaving Brooke Trout in the car, I hiked downstream and found small holes that Wild Brooke Trout could live.  After fishing a couple of holes, I landed my first Rhode Island trout.

Rhode Island Done!

I continued fishing landing a couple of more until I found two waterfalls created by manufactured structures from long ago.  I climbed the one waterfall to see a big pond and the hills in the distance.  Fifteen minutes later, I had caught about 25 trout. So this area of Rhode Island is teaming with a trout population.
