- Narragansett is located south of Narragansett Bay and the Sakonnet River, which are popular saltwater angling destinations. A series of islands form a tidal-influenced estuary, creating 150 square miles of fishing pleasure.
- Striped bass, scup, and fluke are sought-after species, largely replacing the historically desired cod and winter flounder.
- Offshore anglers head away from Narragansett Bay to vie for big sharks, mahi-mahi, and wahoo. Other prized fish are marlin, bluefin tuna, and swordfish. Going after these fish usually entails charters, which are readily available. Consider an overnight charter for a real adventure.
