Rivers End Bait & Tackle

July 16, 2018:
Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook reports that there are some small to medium bass to be had off the local beaches around the mouth of the river, but if you're hunting larger-than-average fish then you'd better temper your expectations. They just started seeing some better bass on the local reefs, and bunker are slowly filling-in, so it should get better.

Previous Reports

    Rivers End Tackle reports that striper fishing from shore in the Old Saybrook area remains a grind. A few bass are being picked up here and there, but the bites are short-lived and irregular. There is still a load of bunker up in the Essex area, and most local shore-casters are eagerly waiting for it to drop down.

    Joe at Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook reports that local striper fishing has been tough from shore. Anglers hitting the beaches around the river have been getting skunked or finding a few small fish at best. The occasional schoolie is being caught at Harkness, but those fishermen taking a ride to the Rhode Island beaches or even up to the Canal are doing much better.

    Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook reports that local surf fishing remains a tough go outside the river, and even inside the confines of the river it has been tough at times. Along the beaches there are spotty fish here and there, but with little bait being seen there isn't much to hold or attract fish. Inside the river, much like the boaters, the fish seem to be finicky. The bunker is mostly well up-river still, too, so the bites have been sporadic.

    Rivers End Tackle in Old Saybrook reports that the local surf bass bite, outside the river, still has yet to materialize. There are some fish being caught in the river, mostly from the local docks and piers on bait fish. There is some bunker still a ways up the river, so until it starts to move down or some bunker move in from the Sound, the bite will be tough.
