• Connecticut DEEP Marine Fishing Report – 15 May 2014

Striped Bass
fishing is fair to good for schoolies in most of the tidal rivers along the Connecticut shoreline. There are also some keepers in the mix as well. Striper spots include the Pawcatuck River, Mystic River, Thames River, Niantic River, lower Connecticut River (DEEP Marine Headquarters fishing pier), Black Hall River...

Also, New Haven Harbor (Sandy Point), Housatonic River and Norwalk Harbor including the islands. Sand and blood worms have been working the best especially in turbid waters. Casting swimming lures, small jigs with twister tails, soft baits, and Kastmasters and other metal lures will all work. Fishing should get better as we approach the magical 50°F mark!***

Winter Flounder fishing remains slow in the Poquonock River at Bluff Point State Park, Niantic River, Jordan Cove, lower Saugatuck River and the channels in Norwalk Harbor. Other flounder spots include the lower Mystic River, and the mouth of the Thames River in the Pine Island area including Baker Cove.
