Friday Fishing Tips – Jeff Gross

by Jeff Gross, contributing writer

Fall is in the air and the trout are ready to start biting again. The RI DEM will stock trout for the fall starting today October 1st through Friday October 8th.  The weather will be fantastic this weekend so indulge in a little me-time or family time and head to the trout waters. No mask required.  It is one place that the “New World Order” does not control yet!

This is the list of trout areas that will be stocked over the next week:

o Barbers Pond, South Kingstown

o Barberville Dam, Wood River, Exeter

o Bradford Landing, Pawcatuck River, Hopkinton

o Breakheart Pond, Exeter

o Browning Mill Pond, Exeter

o Carbuncle Pond, Coventry

o Carolina Trout Pond, Richmond

o Check Station, Route 165, Wood River, Exeter

o Cronan Landing, Wood River, Hopkinton

o Dow Athletic Field & Dam, Wood River, Hope Valley

o Eight Rod Farm Pond, Tiverton

o Grantville, Route 95 underpass, Wood River, Richmond

o Kings Factory Bridge, Pawcatuck River, Charlestown

o Meadow Brook Pond, Richmond

o Olney Pond, Lincoln State Park, Lincoln

o Round Top Ponds, Burrillville

o Shippee Sawmill Pond, Foster

o Silver Spring Lake, North Kingstown

o Spring Grove Pond, Glocester

o Stafford Pond, Tiverton

o Upper Pawtuxet, Coventry

o Willet Pond, East Providence

o Woodville, Wood River, Richmond

If you are like this writer fishing in relative weed-free areas is important.  So here is a list of relatively weed free locations:

o Barbers Pond, South Kingstown

o Barberville Dam, Wood River, Exeter

o Bradford Landing, Pawcatuck River, Hopkinton

o Carbuncle Pond, Coventry

o Check Station, Route 165, Wood River, Exeter

o Cronan Landing, Wood River, Hopkinton

o Dow Athletic Field & Dam, Wood River, Hope Valley

o Olney Pond, Lincoln State Park, Lincoln

o Silver Spring Lake, North Kingstown

o Woodville, Wood River, Richmond

The other locations as of late spring were getting weed choked.  In general, most of the Wood River is fishable. However, be aware that Wood River between Route 165 and Barberville Dam at Arcadia Road shall be limited to two trout or charr from the second Saturday in May through the last day of February

Good Luck – and let’s see those pictures!
