Fun Things To Do

Best Shellfishing Spots on Cape Cod | Update Fall 2019

Courtesy of C Dannhauser

Fall is a great time for shellfishing on Cape Cod.  The water is still relatively warm and the weather, if you aren't in the middle of a Nor'Easter, is generally crisp and beautiful.  A lot reopens in October and November so time to get the rake out of the shed and start digging.

Each town has unique regulations and areas that are open and closed depending on the season.  Check out the listings below for more details on your town.  We also provide one or two suggestions of our favorite places but we suggest you find your own!

  Town information     Our Favorite Spot (but check for seasonal closures)  
Bourne Buttermilk Bay
Sandwich Mill Creek
Falmouth Waquoit Bay
Mashpee Great River south of the landing
Barnstable Scudder Lane or West Bay
Yarmouth Gray's Beach
Dennis Cove Rd (West Dennis Side)
Brewster Ellis Landing
Harwich Wychmere Harbor
Chatham Mill Creek or Oyster Pond
Orleans Little Pleasant Bay
