Stephen J. Medeiros Fishing Area Dedication- Saturday, 12/22

Please join us at 655 Ocean Rd, Narragansett, RI 02882, the parking area for the newly named Stephen J. Medeiros Fishing Area on Saturday, December 2, 2023 at 10 AM to help us dedicate this beautiful area in the name of Stephen Medeiros. Steve had an unmatched vision for how recreational saltwater anglers could band together and make a positive change. Steve made this vision a reality by founding the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Association (RISAA) and growing RISAA into “The Voice of Southern New England Fishermen”. Steve worked with RIDEM and other State agencies while establishing the Rhode Island Saltwater Anglers Foundation, Take a Kid Fishing Day, Kids Fishing Camp, the New England Saltwater Fishing Show, the RISAA Magazine, and many more activities which now continue to serve saltwater fishers. To honor Steve and all that he did for us, RISAA and the RI Department of Environmental Management will oversee this dedication and ongoing improvements to the area. We thank all of those involved from RIDEM and the RI Legislators who made this dedication possible.

The original date of October 21 had to be postponed due to some delays in preparations for the dedication. All those who wish to honor Steve and his legacy are invited to attend. We hope that the weather is good that day so that you can walk the trails and enjoy the true beauty that this spectacular piece of Rhode Island has to offer. We urge you to consider parking in the Scarborough Beach parking lot and carpooling up to the site which is less than 1 mile north of the parking area on Ocean Rd. For more information please contact Scott Travers, RISAA Executive Director at travers@risaa.org or 401-826-2121.
