100 acre cove parking?

Hey guys, I'n still new at flyfishing lol.
For years I have been fishing the two popular bridges on 114 in Barrington/Warren. I wanted to try to hit the 100 acre cove area with the fly rod. I was afraid to park anywhere nearby. I noticed Moblie oil has no Parking signs. I also learned that the nature trails are town residents only, (I have Mass, plates).
I then went across the cove near Knockum and saw a public nature trail with absolutely no parking around there. lol
I ended up back across behind the white church, great time but busy. Always someone near my awful dangerous backcast. Then I felt back taking up a lot of room at a popular spot.
I sure don't want anyone to burn a good spot up river more but maybee some parking advice?

Thanks,
Tom

Tom,

Supposedly the Town of Barrington rescinded the parking ordinance to outsiders after a three year ban that abuts the conservation area. Next time you past there, read the new signs.

Another place to park is just before White Church on Route 114 called Walker Farm.
There is a boat ramp and launch area there too.

Many of us fish the area. Just PM the Rhody guys. Sean R, Steve, Sean M, and Ray, etc.

Unfortunately my town is about the worst when it comes to waht should be public access

Check out this right of way map as there are a few places on the cove you can get in:

I have a kayak and usually park at the walker farm Ray mentions. There can be some decent wade fishing there at times.
