I talked to Max at Fisherman's World and the Housy has had another good week with jig-bouncers doing most of the damage and - predictably - nightime has been the best time. He said there are more herring showing up now too and, if you can find a school of them, the bass may be more active and apt to hit some kind of swimming plug or unweighted soft plastic. For those looking for freshwater action, the trout fishing in the Norwalk and Mill Rivers has been good for local bites and the Farmington also continues to produce good catches. And don't forget that the Naugatuck was recently stocked with large salmon which are also drawing angler attention.

I talked to Max at Fisherman's World and he said the Housy has continued to produce good striper catches at 'the usuak haunts' which means Sunnyside and points north. Nighttime has been the best time to connect with bigger fish, while daytime fishers are finding smaller fish - on average - but they're still finding a few north of 30 inches as well. Herring are around, but the bite has been slow locally, with some better catches reported off Stamford and points west. Last year the herring bite didn't really catch fire until mid-February, so maybe we're going to see a repeat of that. Freshwater guys have been hitting the Mill and Norwalk rivers for trout with good results. Ice fishers are heading north and find fishable ice and hungry fish.
