Nauset Inlet

Fell in love the Nauset Inlet late summer last year. What a Spot! When does that area see its first Stripers?

Last spring schoolies were there by the third week in May, but obviously a late year. I assume they were at least a week earlier because that same week blues were on the Poppy flats. That whole area, Nauset and Pleasant bay are usually early to warm up with the shallow sands.

Shhhh, BR Fly Guy! There's no good fishing around the Inlet! It's too rough, too cold, too remote and just plain too unfishy, you know THAT! Don't tell people there are fish around there after all, we wouldn't want them to waste their time at a dangerous, rough, almost always foggy, cold, nasty place that has fat women in things on the beach now would we? Oh, and the sharks? Yikes...

Now your stretching the truth.... No way they could make that incredible long hard walk out there. The sand flees, and other biting bugs would have them reduced to a shell of their former self. Also you want avoid to travelling out there in the dark. The raccoons are vicious. The skunks are trigger happy. The coyotes aggressive, they'll steal anthing you leave on the beach that has a fish smell to it while your in the surf casting.

Interestingly, I have seen coyotes, skunks, a 22'-27' great white shark, killer whales, and fat women in swimsuits (who drove out there with oversand permits or in boats) all out there. Seriously, other people saw them with me. All very scary!

Obviously none of you have ever fished there. You never even mentioned the Alligator that lives in the banks. Jeeeshhh....

Ok I'm thinking of the other side of the inlet which is accessed from the National Seashore. Only residents can get permits to drive the North Nauset beach and with that crowd why would any sane flyfishing person want to hike that gauntlet?

Right your are CMP, I was only thinking of the ones that do not deck themselves out in Orvis gear from head to toe. You know, the normal types with a flyrod in one hand, and a baitcaster in the other with their box of flies sitting on top of the eel bucket.

Talking Nauset access

where is there a boat ramp that will allow access to Nauset? I can deal with sand fleas, coyotes, rabid racoons and great white sharks. Those improperly occupied bathing suits though scare the begesious out of me. When do those sharks show up?

Last time I was there with boat, I had a tin boat and gained access via the unimproved ramp off of Hemingway ave. in Eastham.

I also used the ramp by Goose Hummock in Orleans, that gets you into town cove and you can follow the channel markers out.

The inlet is one of the trickiest places on the cape. Sand bars are constantly shifting and even the locals that use it on a regular basis have run aground. I read an article about the most dangerous boating areas on the cape, it was listed as one of them. Most of the time I use my boat to access the beach and fished from shore or inside. I did hit once when it was flat calm and I could easily travel outside.

about 2 weeks after you see bass in wareham, and the south side of the cape-usually the first week of may, unless it's a cold spring like last year. just wait for the water to get within a couple of degrees of 50
