Tempest Knob is located on the Wareham River, just across the water from Wareham Center. Boaters who launch from here can quickly reach fishing hotspots like The Narrows, located just up the river, or Wings Neck and Mashnee Flats in upper Buzzards Bay. Paddlers can set off on kayaks or paddleboards to explore the coves and shores around nearby Parkwood Beach.
Habitats & Wildlife
The Wareham River is a destination for spring striper fishing. Juvenile stripers called “schoolies” begin arriving in late April, heading upstream to chase migrating river herring. The river is also a popular place to catch bluefish snappers in late summer and fall.
