I love kayak fishing on Cape Cod, especially during the summer. The days are long, and when the weather cooperates, it is hard to beat a day spent on the water in Wellfleet Bay.
During the summer, Wellfleet Bay is alive, and everything from coyotes to stripers are active, both day and night.
The Lower Cape is also one of my favorite places to visit, especially before school gets out. The traffic is less severe, especially on weekdays, which is when I usually choose to make my treks down Cape.
Kayaking Wellfleet Bay
Wellfleet Bay is a favorite kayak spot of mine. A lot of the area falls within the boundaries of Cape Cod’s National Seashore, and is thus conservation land.
Much of the shoreline is undeveloped and undisturbed, and it’s not unusual to encounter deer, coyotes and many species of birds which are harder to come by in more developed areas.
In this post, I will share with you what I have learned during the past few years of my experience kayak fishing Wellfleet Bay.
We'll discuss some areas worth fishing, places to launch, as well as some stories and words of advice from my recent trips to the area.
