About This Boat

Fishing Charters in Rhode Island and Cape Cod

The goal of Patterson Guide Service is to provide you with a Rhode Island or Cape Cod fly fishing or light tackle trip you will never forget! I will take the necessary steps to ensure that every trip you take with me is enjoyable, educational and of course, full of action. When you fish with me, you can count on my patient, friendly instruction, enthusiasm and guidance to make every minute count. I welcome you on your next trip with Patterson Guide Service.

What to Expect

It does not matter if you are a beginner or an avid fisherman, there is always something new to learn. My variety of fly fishing and light tackle trips are designed to provide you the opportunities to improve and master various situations while on the water and of course to land the fish of your dreams.

Captain Brian Patterson

I am fortunate to have 36 years of fishing behind me (since the age of 4) and, over 15 years of those have been guiding others to catch the many species that the east coast has to offer. I have been featured on two covers of On The Water magazine, three TV shows as well as multiple publications. I was on the 2011 and 2013 faculty staff with George Poveromo and his Saltwater Sportsman Seminar Series. I specialize in Fly Fishing and Light tackle (both Lures and Bait) and am fully licensed and insured.

Special Thanks: To my dad for spending so much time teaching me how to fish. Behind every cast are your words.

Patterson Guide Service is centrally located in Bristol, Rhode Island and within easy driving distance to all of Rhode Island and Massachusetts fishable waters based upon the season. I also have access to many of the ponds in the area for early season trout if freshwater species is your main target. From rocky shoreline flyfishing to fly fishing/light tackle trips all along southern new England and Cape Cod, I can personally design a New England fly fishing/light tackle experience specifically tailored to your interests. You can choose to fish from the brand new custom built Nort Coasty 23 foot center console boat or we can join our resources and fish from kayaks or walk/wade trips along the beautiful shorelines of the New England coast. Either way, I would like to personally thank you for considering Patterson Guide Service as your Rhode Island Sport fishing outfitter.

I am often asked "what is the best time to come to Rhode Island for fishing?" My response is simple. What do you want to fish for? Early season is striper time! From April to early July the stripers are in the upper bay and feed aggressively on large bait.

July through early August allows time for several different types of fishing. While Stripers make their way out of the upper bay, they can still be taken out on Block Island as well as Newport. Bottom fishing charges up for Fluke, Sea Bass and depending upon the month, Blackfish. Blue Fin Tuna make their way to Cape Cod Bay for a fight you won't forget.

Late August to September is called "funny fishing". Here we chase Albacore, Bonito and of course, The Blue Fin Tuna. Stripers start to heat back up all along the coast line including Cape Cod Bay prior to their fall migration.

As you can see, there is a fish for all seasons depending upon what your passion may be. While I concentrate mostly on Fly Fishing, some of these fish are either just too big for a fly rod or require the range of spin gear. If you are ready for a challenge and have the energy to land big fishing consistently, you should consider coming to one of the best saltwater destinations in the North East!

On the water you will enjoy patient, professional instruction and guidance from a certified guide while you're on board one of the best built boats in New England or wade in some of Rhode Islands's most spectacular shorelines. I will not only work hard to get you into fish, but we also work to give you an understanding of the rivers and surrounding ecosystems. I place a premium on education. Whether it's an improvement in your cast, a faster way to tie knots, you'll take home more than just memories of a great trip.
