Fishin' Factory 3

July 16, 2018:
Jay at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown told us that carp fishing has been good in the Connecticut River at Harbor Park in Middletown, pineapple and tiger nut boilies productive there. Also along the river anglers are doing all right with smallmouths on rocky structure and pike in the Haddam Meadows area and marina basins. Best bass reports came from Millers Pond in Durham where bassmen are taking largemouth to 6 pounds on topwater lures.

    Regarding carp fishermen in his locale, Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown remarked, "They still going crazy." The hardcore guys are putting in entire weekends on the banks of the Connecticut River, and they're pulling in lots of nice buglemouths. More than likely they'll be doing the same for as long as carp keep biting. Carp aren't the only species hitting in the river, however. Smallmouths are being caught on structure in the Middletown area, and one fellow showed Andrew a photo of a 5-pound largemouth he'd popped in the river. In addition, his friend continues reeling in bowfins at the Mattabesset River, a tributary of the Connecticut River. No word again from any trouters, but Andrew is positive the Farmington River is as productive as ever.

    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown told us that one of his customers has been catching loads of bowfins on spinnerbaits in the Mattabesset River. Also his carp-catchin' friends are still banking lots of buglemouths in the Connecticut River in the Middletown area. In fact, the carp action isn't showing any signs of slowing down. (We remind readers that Fishin' Factory 3 carries a full line of carp fishing tackle, gear, and baits.) Andrew also heard that some nice trout are available in deeper pools along the Salmon River, and bass fishing has been good on Zara Spooks, Senkos, and imitation frogs at Bashan Lake and Moodus Reservoir.

    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown had news of excellent carp and catfish action in the Middletown-Portland-Cromwell stretch of the Connecticut River with Harbor Park being a hot spot for the buglemouths. Good numbers of white perch fishing are being taken too downstream in Essex. For the second week in row Andy failed to receive reports from bass anglers. He assumed bass action's been good in local ponds and lakes because he's been selling lots of topwater lures including poppers, buzzbaits, and imitation frogs. He also didn't have much to say about fishing for trout in streams other than recommending the Farmington River as a best bet. Trout action in lakes and ponds, on the other hand, has been very good especially at Highland Lake where some of his buddies are catching big browns on Davis Rigs down deep.

    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown apologized for not having much to say about freshwater fishing. By his estimate more than ninety percent of the reports he's getting now are from saltwater anglers. He did mention good carp fishing in the Connecticut River with Haddam Meadows and Harbor Park being favored sites and Mainline boilies in Essential IB and Banoffee being popular baits. He also talked a little about decent largemouth bass action at Bashan Lake.
