In Order To Reduce Crowds Rhode Island Staggers Days When People Can Fish

To reduce the number of people fishing at any given time and mitigate crowds during the COVID-19 public health crisis, the Rhode Island DEM has implemented a system that staggers the days when licensed anglers can fish. Those with last names beginning with A through M can only fish on even-numbered calendar days, and those with last names beginning with N through Z can only fish on odd-numbered calendar days. DEM will also impose parking restrictions during the first two weekends of the fishing season and have removed porta-johns from fishing sites as a public health measure.
