Charles Walsh’s Fishing Report

“The day started out fine; just the right amount of overcast to keep the stripers and bluefish from needing sunglasses to see a lure moving through the water.

Beach Closings Rampant


“Nationally, there were 5,400 closings or notices last year. They affected 1,210 — or 32 percent — of all monitored beaches, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reported. That was about 5 percent of total beach days, both percentages unchanged for the past three years.”

Don’t forget, a saltwater fishing license is now required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. You can purchase one for $10.00 from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
