• Ebb Tide in The Race

“Your best chance for a bass or blue in The Race right now is the ebb tide, and if you pick the right spot in our waters, you have a chance of a keeper fluke, maybe a sea bass and loads of porgies on most of our near-shore rock piles.“
Tim Coleman writing in TheDay.com

• CT DEP [Yawn] Fishing Report #14 [7/22]

“STRIPED BASS and BLUEFISH fishing remains fair to good. The usual fishing spots include the Watch Hill area, Ram Island Reef (Fishers Island Sound), lower Thames River, the Race (by Race Rock and Valiant Rock), outer Bartlett Reef, the Sluiceway, Plum Gut, Pigeon Rip, warm water discharge from Millstone Power Station, the “humps” south of Hatchett Reef, Long Sand Shoal, Cornfield Point, Southwest Reef, Sixmile Reef, Falkner Island area, reefs off Guilford and Branford, New Haven Harbor, buoys #18 and #20 off Bridgeport, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Black Rock Harbor, Penfield Reef, Norwalk Islands, Cable and Anchor Reef, Smith Reef and the reefs off Stamford and Greenwich. SNAPPER BLUE fishing is good in the tidal creeks although the fish are only 4 to 5 inches in length.”

Don’t forget, a 2010 saltwater fishing license is required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. Also, if you intend to fish above the Merritt Parkway bridge on the Housatonic River, you also need a Connecticut freshwater license. You can purchase these from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
