Connecticut Fishing Reports

New London-Area Fishing Report

”Needless to say, marine waters have seen an upsurge of fishing activity. Striped bass have spread all along the shoreline into the rivers and bays, as well as onto several inshore reefs. Both ebb and flood tides are producing "linesider" catches from schoolie size fish up to some reaching 30 inches with the hot baits being herring, sandworms, and soft plastics. Periodic schools of spring menhaden have also garnered their attention when entering key harbors and tidal rivers.”
