Fishing the Cape and North

Planning a trip to the Cape first week of July w/ my new bride figure on spending a day or two in Chatham fishingf SB and enjoying the town then heading North. Maybe do a little camping in the Provincetown or Norh Truro areas. Are there any flats or wading fishing oppertunities farther north?
Any suggestions on were we could fish? Will be my first trip North of SB.

Hey bro -

The beaches up there are fantastic. If you want to mess with the Mrs (as a joke) go to Head of the Meadows beach and walk north on a nice day hehe. You'll soon see why.

I like the area just to the south of that for fishing, off hours and moving tides. Rule of thumb - ocean facing breaks on a rising tide will bring fish to the shore but generally look for birds over bait and rely on sht luck as usual to put good fish in your lap.

The inside has decent flats fishing but the tide comes quickly and there are typically lots of blues in that area in July. They were coming up the Nauset shore in great numbers last weekend.

Check Pamet River mouth, the areas to the east end of Billingsgate shoal and south down thru Wellfleet and Brewster.

Herring Cove area is productive although I usually fish the outside shore structures and tide currents when up that far on the hook.

I think you can buy inexpensive short-term oversand permits at the HQ.

Sounds great! Lots of options, thanks
We may just have to take that walk north of Meadows beach ;-P
What types of flies do I want for that time of year? Standard clouser, deep eel stuff?
Should be fun to explore the area for 4 or 5 days.

That area has some of the biggest sand eels you'll ever see from shore - some look as fat as cocktail wieners and almost 10 inches long. Even the largest bass eat & love them.

But that shoreline gets surprise visits from all kinds of ocean forage from tinker macks to halfbeaks, squid, blueback herring, etc - and when hordes of big bass and blues push them into the structures to pound the hell out of them the sound is deafening. The only thing you will hear above the fray is your own heartbeat as you try to tie a fly on with shaking hands.

Most of the time you will do well by exploring breaks and bowls with an olive-toned deep eel with some pearl or peacock flash on a sinking or intermediate line. Put a thin streak of chartreuse in the middle of the polar bear / olive. to accent. As you approach the tip the longshore current is strong and I prefer a sinking line. When the current speeds up I find the biggest fish with their bellies right on the bottom.

I haven't been up there in a while since it's almost as far from the elbow as Boston in the other direction, or it seems like it because of all the good water you pass to get there. Beautiful seashore though, perhaps as good as it gets.
