New England - Connecticut Fishing Reports

New England Video Fishing Forecast March 23,, 2023

Holdover stripers keep pouring it on as the official start of spring passes—there have been great catches reported from the Housatonic River and many lesser-known strongholds in Rhode Island and The Cape.

And writer for The Fisherman and master angler Jeff Sullivan’s quest for the state record white perch falls just ounces shy of hitting the magic number. Finally, don’t forget to swing by the CT Fishing & Outdoor Show this weekend at Mohegan Sun!
