The fishing in the western Long Island Sound is simply going off. Striped bass and tautogs are stacked. Blues are still mixed in however, not nearly as much as a week back. A monster tog was caught on the south side of two tree channel in 22 feet of water. The beast weighed 23.5 lbs and was only 1.5 lbs shy of the world record. The black fishing is very hot on the eastern edge of captains island. Think incoming tide, rocks, 20-30 feet of water, and green crap imitations and you might just get a monster. The black fish are absolutely huge right now!
Striped bass were seen all over the western sound. Greenwich, Byram and Rye. Look for the birds in the shallows and if they are not at work then go out to the depths. The fish are stacked! The stripers are mostly in the schoolie range however there are big ones to still be had(the various reefs are a good bet.) If you have big eel patters then get them out there! Do not forget a few bay anchovies because there is still a chance for a late season albie!
On the freshwater scene the CT DEEP finished their fall stocking of 400 Atlantic salmon in the Shetucket and Naugatuck Rivers in the 3-18 lb range. Swinging a flashy streamer is the way to go. Keep in mind one might not get a hit until you flash him in the eye or mouth. Make sure you work the river inch by inch for these fish might not care to expend energy to get to the fly.
Will be out fishing all day tomorrow!
