The Narragansett Surfcasters

Fishing Rhode Island Since 2005


The Surfcasters Club was formed in 2005 and then incorporated in 2007 by a group of like-minded sportsmen from the southern Rhode Island area who share in the excitement of fishing for hard-fighting striped bass, bluefish, bonito and albacore.

The club evolved from another striper club that is still in existence.  Today, the Surfcasters has over a hundred members, many of whom can regularly be spotted at their favorite fishing haunt and is stronger than ever before.

Monthly meetings are held at a local venue and are well attended by the membership.  The meetings often host local or well-known guest speakers, guides or fishing experts.  Other events include our annual Surf Day used tackle meet, Christmas and Awards banquets, Earth Day clean up along the shore, and summer cookouts, which are all part of our club’s regular activities.

The Surfcasters support the local community with its charitable giving program that annually donates numerous Thanksgiving Day gift cards to the needy in our area.  Other community activities, such as our Earth Day Beach Clean-up and Kids Fishing Day, have met with great success as well.

Here is a short slideshow by member Nelson Valles introducing a few of us.
