Fishing is very much allowed on the Charles, and it actually contains some really large fish--pike, bass etc. The upper stretches through Milford, Franklin, Medway, Millis, etc has some good trout water, and the state stocks it each year with trout.

Just thought I'd add that the tales of "tropical" fish being caught in N.E. waters are true... but they are marine fish, and it is a natural occurance. The Gulf stream carries pelagic eggs/fry of Carribean species up along the southern coast of N.E. in the late summer when the water is warmest. As the water cools, these misplaced babies die. The Boston Aquarium Society sponsored several collecting trips way back and we collected Butterfies, Angels, several species of Damsel fish and others. (of course now there are lionfish too, but that's not a natural phenomenon)

Other people have already covered the fresh water side of the question quite nicely, but I thought I'd straighten out where the "rumor" had come from.
