Eastern Long Island Sound

Capt. Bob Turley
August 7, 2001
Long Island Sound - Saltwater Fishing Report

This past week large schools of bluefish have moved into the Stratford area. Long Beach, Russian Beach and the mouth of the Housatonic River have shown fish at different stages of the tide. These fish are feeding on small silver sides, about one half inch long. These fish will hit just about any fly presented to them. My favorite being a chartreuse Gurgler fished on a floating fly line.

Milford Harbor is holding some large Bunker; there have been larger Bluefish and bass feeding on them. These baits are subjected to the tide. They will be up in the harbor at high tide and out in the bay at low tide. The best way to fish these schools is to use a large white Deceiver, fished on a full sinking line, you have to get the fly down under these large baits to take fish.

The Housatonic River has had some Striped Bass action at Smith's Point, Short Beach and along the Milford sandbars at the eastern end of the river.

Good luck fishing
