If you are looking for the finest fly and light tackle fishing in Rhode Island then look no farther. Capt. Greg Snow and Capt. John Tondra would be honored to guide you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime. Some of the most fertile and pristine coastline anywhere along the eastern seaboard consists of the islands, bays and beaches of Rhode Island.
We follow the fish..
Snowfly Charters will run trips from all
points off Block Island, the mainland Rhode Island and over to Montauk
Point during the fall run (Sept & Oct). We will also run out of
Cape Cod Bay for Bluefin Tuna. We start taking charters in May as
the annual migration of Striped Bass makes its way up to Narragansett
Bay and Block Island. Watch Hill Reef is also getting thick with squid
at this time. For those that are not
familiar with fishing Block Island you are in for a real treat. Some of the
beautiful and uncrowded waters in southern New England surround
the island. The island is known for it's BIG striped bass.
The state record striper of 71 pounds caught on the south side of Block
Island in 1980 was crushed with a 75 pound fish in August of 08'.
Most Striped Bass are caught on surface flies and plugs. There is
nothing like being witness to a monster Striped Bass blasting an
artificial right in front of you! There are always marauding,
bluefish to be had around Block island. Bluefish will destroy topwater
plugs with reckless abandon as well as jump and pull like the insane
fish that they are. The Striped Bass get all the attention but Bluefish are
a much better game fish and pound for pound one of the best in the
world. Block Island is one of the premier points of departure for
hunting Bluefin tuna and sharks. 5 to 15 miles off
BI is all you have to travel to the tuna/shark fishing grounds.
Bonito and false albacore will generally show up in mid
August and provide some of best light tackle fishing an angler can have.
I will also make runs in the fall to fish Montauk, the "Race" at fishers
Island, Watch Hill, and Point Judith, Rhode Island. Please contact
me with any questions about customizing a trip.

Game on in Narragansett Bay and Block Island!
We are now officially in the midst of the Rhode Island Striped Bass fishing season. Block Island was a bit late to light up (as we knew it would be) but Capt John is doing very well and his fly fisherman are out fishing the spin fisherman and the six pack wire liners are downright struggling. The fish are on tiny baits which gives the guys with the whippy stick a huge advantage. Narragansett Bay is still fishing well and I expect it to continue for another week or two. Schools of Menhaden are being harassed on a regular basis by some seriously large Stripers with the occasional gorilla Bluefish and even Weakfish. I think the next few weeks are going to be lights out on the Block so lets get you out with Capt. John to experience one of Southern New England's best fisheries.
Until next time, Screaming reels & ripping tides!
Capt. Greg Snow
