Fishin' Factory 3

November 18, 2019:
Andrew from Fishin' Factory 3 said Black Pond in Meriden-Middlefield and Day Pond Trout Park in Colchester are giving up stocked trout to anglers soaking PowerBaitmealworm combos on the bottom. The trout are aggressive, so they're also striking small metal lures, Phoebes and Colorado Spoons being very popular. Colorado Spoons are also working for one of Andrew's friends who's been trolling the lure at Higganum Reservoir in Haddam and taking good numbers of trout. Andrew also had a little news from guys who've been trying for those giant browns and rainbows stocked two weeks ago into Valley Falls Park Pond Trout Park in Vernon. So far they haven't hooked any of the brutes.

    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown didn't get many reports from freshwater anglers last week, but one he did receive was "big news": Valley Falls Park Pond Trout Park in Vernon was stocked with big breeder trout last week. A mix of browns and rainbows, these retired giants average a whopping 10 pounds apiece. (The pond was also stocked with 350 9- to 12-inch rainbows.) Andy also knew that Black Pond in Meriden-Middlefield is still churning out trout.

    Andrew from Fishin' Factory 3 told us that he's heard from at least a dozen trout fishermen who've been doing fine at Trout Management Areas on the Salmon River and Hammonasset River as well as at Chatfield Hollow Trout Park and Black Pond in Middlefield-Meriden. Many are using pink Gulp! Trout Worms.

    From what Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown said it appears that freshwater fishing has picked up nicely. He's heard reports of excellent trout fishing at the Salmon River TMA and Hammonasset River TMA as well as Chatfield Hollow Trout Park and Black Pond in Middlefield-Meriden. A few fellows also told him about catching northern pike in the Mattabesset River on big Rapalas, large spinnerbaits, and large shiners under a float. Andrew also had details regarding that big time carp tournament (Fishin' Factory 3 Connecticut Carp Open) held on the Connecticut River a couple weeks back. The largest 'lip weighed 36-plus pounds, and the winning Big Four total was 118-plus pounds. For the second year in a row Harbor Park in Middletown was the site of the winning peg.

    Andrew at Fishin' Factory 3 in Middletown had encouraging news for Connecticut River carp catchers: carp fishing has been good. He expects some impressive catches will be made in this week's big time carp tournament (Fishin' Factory 3 Connecticut Carp Open) on the river especially if weather cooperates. Tourney participants are grateful heavy rain missed the area last week. Otherwise, the river would be "blown out" now and hard to fish. A couple of Andrew's friends have also been catching smallmouths in the Middletown-Haddam stretch of the river, and one regular customer let on that he's been catching broodstock salmon in the Shetucket River on a Thomas Buoyant. To make the lure legal for Atlantic salmon fishing, he replaced the treble with a single, free-swinging hook. (Fishing for Atlantic salmon is limited to use of a single fly or artificial lure with a single, free-swinging hook.)
