Saybrook, CT Report

Striped Bass: The spring run in the Connecticut River is under way. There are schoolies and some bass over 30″, but they’re scattered. The best advice is to keep moving until you locate a school. While you’re looking for schools of smaller bass you’ll probably run into a couple of larger ones. The anglers fishing bait from shore are scoring with more consistency from Saybrook Point to Middletown. We got the first reports of bass in Plum Gut yesterday, this is generally the forerunner of bass on the reefs in a few days.

Good reports this week from the reefs off Clinton and Westbrook with mostly 2 to 3' bass and a few beyond that size. Drifting bucktails has been the preferred method. Similar reports are coming from Plum Gut and the Race. The reefs off Waterford have some bass on them also.
The Lower Connecticut River has had more poor than good reports this week. There aren't those schools of smaller bass, instead there are fewer, smaller schools of larger bass and it's harder to find those. The best reports are coming from the flats off Great Island towards the channel to the west.
There's both bunker and herring in the Lower River with some spooky bass looking for them.
