CT river is almost unfishable right now!!


20000cfs is ideal.


Yeah the mack is also very full. Doable with darts but too high for the fly contingent. I went by and sent out a few roll casts--I did catch a shad's scale when I bumped into one. It wasn't very fun casting from the bushes so I headed out to the salt, where I was skunked.

The weather has turned suboptimal for shad fishing.

High/muddy rivers lock them down.

If the precipitation subsides, the next 2 weeks should see a significant increase in catch rates as the water clears.


Keep casting... ya never know :howdy:
