You can fish at the Chatham Light, Morris Island, or South beach. South beach starts at the Lighthouse and is approximatly 3 miles to the tip .You can fish the Ocean or the inside...or you can take the Rip Ryder Ferry servce to a midway point at south beach or to north Monomoy Island. The ferry Service is at the Wild Life Refuge on Morris Island...Look on a map to get the exact locations. Fishing on the south Side on Hardings beach is adjacent to Morris Island. Also up along Pleasant Bay and a spot called Ministers point is good on the out going with fish flushing though from pleasant bay. Try Chatruese clousers or Sand eel patterns, also crab and Shrimp on North Monomoy are good..Chartreuse to olive to green are good colors for flies. Flash on the ocean flies and very sparce flash for the inner flats at south beach and North Monomoy.
