Fishing Hot at Milford Point

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Charlie W. was kind enough to take this photo and send it along to us. Fisherfolk are lined up at Milford Point and Charlie reports that the fishing was hot.

This means the stripers are moving down the Housatonic River and out into Long Island Sound. Perhaps the high water from the recent rains is urging the fish to start their migration north.

We're late getting Shoo-Fly into the water this year thanks to an unplanned stay in hospital. All seems to be back on track, however, and we're hoping to splash the boat the week of 05 April.

Weather’s Effect on Fishing

“As the four-seat plane approached Lyme, the Connecticut River stuck out like a coffee-colored streak of paint all the way across Long Island Sound to Plum Gut, where it has maintained a trench from there to the continental shelf (at Block Island Canyon) since the glaciers melted away about 20,000 years ago.”

Housy to Crest Thursday

“The Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service estimates that the Housatonic River, which snakes its way 149 miles from the Berkshires to Milford, will crest Thursday in most places.”

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