Default Clamming in RHODE ISLAND

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know where there are places to go clamming for free in RI. I know there's one by Pt Judith, but I have NO idea where it is, and cannot find directions on the net! Help!?

Funny you ask... I just finished reading Rhode Island Monthly and they had a feature on all thing Shellfish including a blurb about how and where to clam.. the article mentions Potter's Cove/Taylor Pt in Jamestown, Point Judith Pond, Greenwich Cove in Goddard Park and Sapowet Marsh and Fogland Beach both in Tiverton.

First, all clamming is free! But, that could change any moment since salt water fishing will soon require a permit. Some places are closed periodically due to runoff pollution. You will need to call Rhode Island DEM for those areas closed.

A buddy of mine and his friends all go to conimicut point in Warwick, and with hip waders they just walk out with some 5 gallon buckets, a tool they make themselves to dig with, and voila - clams galore! I don't know about eating them though - he says their delicious, but if you start to glow in the dark after consuming them, then I would stay away.

Quonochontaug Breachway and the other Charlestown RI points of access were always great fishing and shell fishing areas. Being that I had family that actually lived on West Beach, Quonochontaug was always a no-brainer for us. With all the required gear and a small jonboat already there made it EZ-PZ. The waters are clean and there isn't any real industry around to overly contaminate the waters. Clams and quahogs always seemed to be plentiful. Don't know if it's still legal but a bathroom rubber plunger on a broom handle made short work of digging clams in 6 or more inches of water! If my brother and I worked hard at it we could fill a bushel basket in a half an hour if we hit a good spot. The best areas were always by boat on the far side of the breachway. We also would spear a few skate in the shallow water while we were there. One in front with the spear and one in the back slowly trolling! Oh to be about 14 again!

Ninagret part, at the end of the long runway.

And it's free to dig and eat them, but not to sell them. Selling requires a license.
