• Connecticut, Long Island Sound, Housatonic River Saltwater Fishing Report: 29 April 2015

Spring appears to be a bit behind schedule this year...perhaps because of the lovely winter Connecticut residents enjoyed in 2015.

Nevertheless, it must be spring. First boat Charlie W. and I spotted on the Housatonic River was racing full bore through the no-wake zone. The first "lunkhead" of the season. More of these will blossom as the season progresses.

Spring also brings down-river some other stuff you'd rather not run into.

Brant have arrived.

And the striped bass are available...

...in great numbers in some locations. Here the Garmin shows a school of striped bass almost four feet thick starting at a depth of about 16 feet.

Lots of fish on the fish-finder, but getting them to bite wasn't always so easy.

Charlie and I found them to be picky and close-mouthed, although we did catch a good number to maybe 23 inches...we were even "doubled-up" on occasion.

I "talked" one schoolie into eating a Lefty's deceiver fly.

Canada geese are already nesting.

Another great day on the water.
