Thames river Stripers

Has anyone heard of or been to the Thames River in Conn? I heard there was some winter striped bass fishing from shore near the power plant. I'd like do a 1/2 day fishing from shore and 1/2 day Mohegan sun trip within the next week or two. Any info? BTW, I'm new here so forgive me for being so blunt.
Thanks

This seems to be a pretty good summary of the fishery, although I can't vouch for it myself.

I have not fished the Thames but It's common knowledge that there's a very large holdover population around the power plant. There was a good article about the area in a recent "On the Water" magazine. I believe you also need a Conn. fresh water license to fish there. Or, wait a few weeks and start fishing the tributaries in RI and SW Mass.

Contact the Fish Connection shop on rte 12 in PReston across the River from the casino and power plant. They know the area well. 860-885-1739.

RE: Thames river Stripers

It's not THAT kind of a power plant. The fish do glow, but it's on account of the sub base downstream.

In any event, to answer the original post: yes, there are stripers there year-round; there was a very good article in The Fisherman about a month and a half ago about the fishery; the previous poster was right about the CT fishing license (because you are upstream of the first bridge); I don't know about shore access near the power plant. Oh, and at the Mohegan, put all your money on 26. Trust me.
