When Is The Best Time To Fish For Striped Bass

on the Connecticut River?

The best time to fish for striped bass on the Connecticut River is from late June through mid-August. The period between May and early August can be a very productive time of year for this species, as juvenile striped bass are moving into their first spawning ground in Long Island Sound. In addition, many trophy stripers that have been caught during spring or summer trips may still be finning over their winter brood stock near Lake Champlain, New York Bay and other locales where they were spawned prior to being transported out of state.
