Weekly Connecticut Fishing Reports
Conditions around the state as reported by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection

CONNECTICUT RIVER: Large striped bass are being caught in the lower river on live eels, hickory shad and scup. ... Northern pike fishing is excellent, with many catches reported (especially in the coves) from Hartford downstream to Haddam, Some good smallmouth bass action is reported in the upper river near Enfield and Windsor). ... Angling for catfish in the 3-4 pound range with frozen cut bait is good throughout the river. ... Calico bass action on small minnows remains good in the coves (fish the deeper areas).

SALT WATER

STRIPED BASS/BLUEFISH: Fishing remains good off the Watch Hill reefs, Sandy Point in Fishers Island Sound, south side of Fishers Island including the rip off Wilderness Point, the Race (Valiant Rock), the Sluiceway, Plum Gut, Bartlett Reef, Millstone Point, Black Point, Long Sand Shoal, Sixmile Reef, Southwest Reef, the reefs off Branford, Sandy Point (New Haven Harbor), Milford Point, Strat-ford Point area, Penfield Reef, Norwalk Islands, the Cows off Stamford and the wrecks off Greenwich. Live lining eels, menhaden (bunker), scup and hickory shad or fresh cut chunk baits have been pro-ducing some nice stripers in the 40-plus inch range.

SNAPPER BLUEFISH: Fishing is good to excellent. Snappers are only about 4 inches in length but there's nonstop action and they are fun to catch on light tackle.

HICKORY SHAD: Fishing is good in the Niantic River and the lower Connecticut River.

SUMMER FLOUNDER: Fishing is fair to good at the usual places: Sandy Point in Stonington, lower Mystic River, off Groton Long Point, south side of Fishers Island (Isabella Beach), Niantic River, Black Point area, western part of Long Sand Shoal (Westbrook-Clinton area), off the New Haven Harbor breakwaters, Milford area to the mouth of the Housatonic River, and off the Norwalk Islands.

TAUTOG: Fishing is fair to good off Goshen Point (Harkness Memorial State Park), Bartlett Reef, Hatchett Reef, Sixmile Reef, Kimberly Reef, Goose Island, the reefs off Branford, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground area, Penfield reef, and Greens Ledge.

SCUP: Fishing is good on the major reefs and wrecks with fish up to 15 inches in length being re-ported.

ATLANTIC BONITO: Fish have showed up in eastern Long Island Sound. The reefs off Watch Hill and the eastern tip of Fishers Island, Wilderness Point, the Race, Pine Island, and Millstone Point to Pleasure Beach are spots worth trying for these speedsters.

Saltwater
Right now with the full moon on its way, conditions are shaping up for a great weekend of fishing for striped bass and bluefish. Water temperatures are still fairly warm for this time of year, despite the fact that we?ve had a few cool evenings and regular rains. They are still in the 60s, which means the fish are not in a great hurry to migrate at this time.
Striped bass: Captain John Planetta of Franks Tackle in Marlborough caught stripers of 30, 40 and 45 pounds that were chasing bunker around the mouth of the Connecticut River. John Watts of Captain Don?s Tackle in Charleston, R.I. said all of the breachways were holding good numbers of stripers up to about 25 pounds, with occasional 30s in the mix. Captain Eric Covino of Playing Hookie Charters said he?s seen improvement in the numbers of stripers around Black Point and when the winds allow around Fishers Island. Rennie Robinson of the Fish Connection said Tuesday he and a friend caught 40 to 50 schoolie bass averaging 20 inches on Lunker City Salt Shakers in the middle reaches of the Thames River. He and his partner, because they use light tackle and soft plastics were avoiding the bluefish and finding the bass in closer to shore on the baby bunker, while the blues were picking on adult menhaden in the channel and deeper areas. Bunker are all over and attracting the attention of some whopping big fish. Richard at Hillyer?s Tackle in Waterford said one of his customers, who is a very experienced fisherman, said he saw the biggest striper he?s laid eyes on bust into a school of bunker that was swimming past the commercial docks in Stonington Harbor about a week ago.
Bluefish: The Thames River is loaded with bluefish of all sizes. There are schools of bunker in the river. Find them and you?ve found some big chopper blues and probably some jumbo bass, if you can get baits or lures down to the bass through the marauding blues. Same scenario any place the blues are found.

Outdoors fishing report

The cold snap and high winds have slowed the bite and angler activity levels to a near standstill. Places like the Thames River, which had begun turning on before the big chill, has slowed way down. The fish are there, but not cooperative, because of the retrograde in water temperatures. For instance, a couple of weekends ago, Chapman Pond, a shallow bass lake in Rhode Island, was pushing 50 degrees. Tuesday afternoon, after a series of very cold nights, was 40 degrees and the fish had lock jaw. Despite the continued below-average day and nighttime temperatures, every day the sun shines on the water, it unloads its energy into the bottom of shallow lakes and coves, pushing temperatures up.


Saltwater
Winter flounder: Bluff Point and Niantic River continue to yield fish to those who work hard. There are enough flatfish around to target with expectations of catching some for supper.
Striped bass: Any day now, the Thames River will turn on, but until water temperatures get into the low 50s, it will probably continue to be a day-to-day slow go of it. Three weeks ago, when temperatures had risen after a couple "warming rains," Eric Covino and company caught an astounding 1,614 schoolie bass (all less than 26 inches) from a spot in the Connecticut River over two days of fishing with three others in the boat each day. They fished from noon until dark both days, but this was a really high level of success. The following week, two of the crew caught 80 fish in the same spot and last Saturday two of them fished the Thames for a single striper.

I've been keeping up with this site through the winter as the DEP stops their report in December.

"If you’re like me, the recent warmer temperatures have you thinking about spring. While I believe that spring is right around the corner, finally, a few more ice-fishing trips may be in order as there is plenty of ice and as the ice starts to melt it almost certainly will start getting the fish to move around under there. If you are itching to wet a line in the open water, a trip for schoolie stripers in one of our tidal rivers is a safe bet this weekend as all of the ice jams are finally gone for the year"
