Rhode Island Striper Fishing
Striped Bass Lakes
Striper fishing in Rhode Island is limited to coastal waters, the Bay and the tributaries running into the ocean. The Rhode Island state record striped bass was caught from Block Island.
While stripers are native to salt water, they naturally migrate into fresh water streams to spawn. Their eggs must remain in motion in order to hatch so the fresh water rivers and streams become the ideal spawning grounds for stripers. Landlocked stripers then populate the lakes.
