Jutting nearly a mile out into Long Island Sound, Pennfield Reef is a striped bass fishing hotspot that anglers flock to each year to chase striped bass and bluefish. The reef holds tons of baitfish, and draws the predatory gamefish into the shallows behind them!
Join chapter leaders, members and friends for a fun morning of fishing and learn how and where to go for striped bass. You'll want to bring a 7, 8 or 9-weight fly rod with floating or intermediate sinking line, and a good stock of clousers and deceivers and sand eel patterns in sizes 1 and 2. Wet wading is possible, but waders make it easier to get out into thigh-deep water to reach the fish in the deeper channels.
This fun, free outing is a great way to learn where to go, in the Sound, how to fish for striped bass, bluefish and other saltwater gamefish, and to meet friends and fellow anglers from the chapter!
