• Connecticut DEEP Marine Fishing Report – 24 April 2014

Striped Bass fishing is good in the Housatonic River, Connecticut River (DEEP Marine Headquarters fishing pier), and the Black Hall River. Sand and blood worms will do the trick especially in murky water.

Winter Flounder fishing has been on the slow side. Early season flounder spots include the lower Mystic River, Poquonock River at Bluff Point State Park, mouth of the Thames River in the Pine Island area including Baker Cove, Niantic River including the bay, and Norwalk Harbor.

Blackfish fishing spring season runs April 1st-30th with a daily bag limit of 2 fish per angler. However, with water temperatures in the low 40’s °F don’t expect a lot of action until the water warms up. The New Haven breakwaters are one of the better early season fishing spots for tog.

“The sun is out and the weather has been getting warmer, but Connecticut’s waters are still very cold and the state reminded boaters Friday to take safety precautions before heading out.

”…water temperatures are still in the 40s, which is cold enough to cause serious injury or death if someone becomes submerged.”
