• Connecticut DEEP Marine Fishing Report – 07 May 2015



STRIPED BASS fishing is good to excellent 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, 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 around the high tide. 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 55°F mark!

WINTER FLOUNDER fishing remains slow but improving in the Poquonock River at Bluff Point State Park, Niantic River, The Brothers, Jordan Cove, lower Saugatuck River, Calf Pasture Beach area, Norwalk Islands (Cockonoe) 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.

WHITE PERCH fishing is good to excellent for these tasty panfish in most of the tidal rivers and coves along the Connecticut shoreline. Perch spots include the Pawcatuck River, Mystic River, Thames River, upper Niantic River, lower Connecticut River (DEEP Marine Headquarters fishing pier), Black Hall River, Lieutenant River, North/South Cove and Hamburg Cove. Shrimp and worms are the key to success.
