• Connecticut DEEP Saltwater Fishing Report - 26 JUL 2012



Striped Bass and Bluefish fishing is good at the following areas: The Watch Hill reefs, lower Thames River, the Race, Plum Gut, Pigeon Rip, Little Gull Island, outer Bartlett Reef, Black Point, Hatchett Reef, lower Connecticut River, Long Sand Shoal, Cornfield Point, Southwest Reef including outer SW Reef, Six Mile Reef, the reefs off Madison to Branford, Falkner Island area, and New Haven Harbor (including Sandy Point).

Also, Charles Island area, Housatonic River, buoys 18 and 20 off Stratford Point, Stratford Shoal/Middle Ground, Penfield Reef, around the Norwalk Islands, and Cable and Anchor Reef.

Snapper Bluefish fishing remains good to excellent in the tidal rivers and creeks.

Fluke fishing has really slowed down and is rated just fair to good. Deeper water (90-plus feett) appears to be your best bet for hooking a doormat.

Porgy fishing is good to excellent on the major reefs. Fish measuring 17 inches in length have been reported.

Black Sea Bass fishing around slack tide over hard rocky bottom and wrecks in deep water is your best bet in Long Island Sound. On the other hand, Block Island Sound has been red hot.
