Question Any action in the Stratford, CT area?

Has anyone experienced or heard of any action with bass or blues in the Stratford area lately? I haven't been down that way in a few years and was thinking of giving it another try. Not looking for specific locations, just wondering if there are any decent fish in the area. I'll be fishing from shore.

Thanks for any info, positive or negative.

Bass and blues have both been around. The problem has been VERY small pre-school stripers, and lots of them. In the 10-12" range. Taking small flys fished on top. Bigger flyies solves this but slows the catching down. My experience has been get there an hour before dark. Best fishing right at the point it gets too dark to to see well, then it quiets down before picking up again after it gets as dark as it is going to get. Have not had much luck in daylight lately.

Thanks for the info. I haven't made it down there yet. I've been too busy getting skunked in RI and catching 6"-10" stripers at Hammonasset and Old Saybrook .

Bass and blues have been at the mouth of the Housatonic on both the Milford and Shelton sides, but it's rather hit or miss. If you happen to come across some action down there, chances are that you will have it for an entire tide.

6 to 10inch stripers that's very good news. Perhaps things are so bad after all.
