• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 20 June 2014

Val S. and I caught a bunch of striped bass on Friday—and one bluefish—under wind conditions that kept us bottled up in the Housatonic River.

We never even bothered to unlimber the fly rods so all fish were caught on jig & plastic.

Apparently the fishing wasn't too hot out a Middleground, an area the the head-boats usually frequent, as this party boat steamed right up into the mouth of the Housatonic.

We watched them fish for a minute or so...they seemed mostly to be catching and throwing back sea robins and under-size fluke.

We had fairly steady fishing although one couldn't say it was fast and furious. Val did get that one bluefish to take home for dinner.

So it was schoolie stripers all morning.

The fish were all in very nice condition...sleek and healthy. Must be finding plenty of good stuff to eat.

Another great day on the water.
