RE: Connecticut River Stripers - Theory
Where is Gris Point anyway? With regard to the striper action in the Connecticut, there is a pretty good spring/early summer run that extends all the way to the Holyoke Dam and beyond. A few years back, there was even good fishing in the Wesfield River. I think that the fish are after herring which are also abundant at this time of year. The fishing above the Enfield Dam seems to be closely tied to the water level, with the best upriver fishing with higher water. The comment about winter holdovers at the Enfield Dam is interesting and the area may be worth a try. Just yesterday, I saw hundreds of gulls in a frenzy feed just below the dam as I was crossing the 190 bridge.
