    I just want to say thanks to everyone in this thread for all of the awesome info. I'm moving to Boston tomorrow, and I definately shed a few tears after releasing my last Skykomish fish today. I did stumble across this forum, which was helpful to me. http://www.stripersonline.com/t/598813/fly-fishing-around-boston-ma I hope there's some usable stuff in there for you. My girlfriend came through with a brilliant new salt setup for my birthday, but I'm sure going to miss the days on the Skykomish tribs. I'd love to share whatever local knowledge I accumulate with travelling PNWers out there, so PM me if you're wanting to fish Boston/Cambridge in the future.

    Also see: www.stripermoon.com and www.jackgartside.com You will be getting there on the cusp of the fall Striped Bass run down the New England coast. Which, depending upon weather, can run into November. Autumn in New England is grand.

    The late Jack Gartside used to fish Boston Harbor on a regular basis. Look him up on his old website, there is alot of good stuff there: www.jackgartside.com And Kenny Abrahams is still holding court not far from Boston, and the information is contemporary: www.stripermoon.com

    Might check with Brian Bennett (Moldy Chum blog)--he's from there and fishes the area annually.

    Blacks creek into Boston Harbor in October on a rainy night can be killer for school striped bass. Jamaica pond has bass. They throw broodstock atlantics in there too on occasion. There's pickeral in the brookline reservoir off of route 9, the charles is under-explored, you can catch stripers out off the surf in Nantasket if you follow the birds in October. A kayak would open up a ton of water in the Scituate and Cape Ann shorelines which are spectacular from a boat and really hard to see otherwise. Plum Island region can be a blast for blues and stripers. Merrimac Shad in April- can't say enough about this- don't miss the chance to fish Lowell's downtown right in the historical park for shad, it's a hoot

    I lived in Boston for 7 years and loved the striper fishing. Also there is some pretty awesome trout fishing in western mass. He will know what's running and where to fish. Tell him I sent you, as he is a friend of mine.
