Fishing Report - June 23, 2017
STRIPED BASS - The CT river has been fishing much better over the past week. The consensus is that most of the fish that were upriver have finally dropped down to the lower river. There are a lot of teen sized fish in the lower river that seem focused on bunker right now. For the most part plugs are being ignored as many people report fish swirling or following their plugs in to the boat with no take. Surfcasters are reporting slow action along the local beaches and out towards Rhode Island. We hear the Cape has been very hot along the beaches.
BLUEFISH - They are around the lower CT river blowing up on the bunker schools most days. Also heard of some at Plum Gut recently and Millstone.
BLACK SEA BASS - The action has really taken off. We hear that spots that were barren a week ago are full of sea bass now. One angler said his last trip to Six Mile reef was very good whereas the same spot a week prior was barren of fish. We hear Block Island has been very good too.
FLUKE - Finally we are hearing of good fluking locally. A few people have reported good fluking right in the river with some keepers in the mix this week. We also heard of some at Long Sand Shoal now. Block Island has had very good fishing with nice fish up to 8 lbs recently.
PORGIES - The action has improved with more reports coming in.
