A local report - occasionally fluffy, but never phony - of the past week's salt water fly fishing and light tackle fishing activity, primarily along the coast of Fairfield County Connecticut.
May 25, 2020 Happy Memorial Day!
What a whacky weather weekend. There was Wind, fish, drizzle, fish, fog, fish, breaks of sun, breaks of fish, waves, well you get the picture.
Junior anglers and grown-ups alike had ample opportunities to sight cast to breaking fish over the last few days.
It seems a bevy of baitfish were blocked off by Bass & Blues off the beaches.
That's right, Blues have arrived right on schedule for the holiday weekend adding raucous irreverence to baits natural and artificial. The plethora of pelagic fish food available to our quarry required some voluminous cajoling and a little run and gun. But enough fish were riled to unrelenting rapaciousness that double headers were reachable.
I'd say the season is kicking in nicely.
