This is my first season flyfishing. So far I have fished in Vermont, Maine and the Swift River just below Quabbin. I am now looking for a few spots close to home to go to for those times when you just want to be on the water without an hour or more drive. I live in Bellingham MA (just north of Woonsocket RI) and the Blackstone River is only about 20 minutes away. I seldom hear anything about the Blackstone, so I am assuming it may not be a "great" river. But, are there any spots on the Blackstone that anyone can recommend that might serve my purpose? Specifics would be appreciated.
Are there any other nearby brooks or streams one can recommend?
I quess you can say I am trying to locate my "home waters". Your help will be most appreciated.
