Thames River
« on: November 04, 2005, 06:08:09 PM »
The lower Thames River was on fire today with schoolies, we managed 150-200 stripers (no exaggeration here..) from 7-12, also managed one keeper size.  What a blast!!  Water temps 50-54.  Fish should be making their way further up the river over the coming weeks.

That's awesome. I have heard some many great things about the thames river holding bass over the winter even saw a new england fishing show about it. I just don't know where to go or what part of the thames to fish to get that action. Is there a bout ramp? Can I fish from shore? Any help would be great.

Thank you in advance....

You can access the lower part easiest from the ramps under the goldstar bridge in Groton or NL.  The upper part is easiest to access from the ramp in downtown Norwich.  There is also a ramp in Montville near the power plant.  This time of year, watch your electronics for bunker and schools in or near the main river channel, also try all the shallow flats off the main river channel.  Be VERY careful your first few times out, there are some major rock walls up and down the river just outside of the river channel...most are above the Mohegann bridge.

Stan,

Were you catching them near the mouth, or further up the river?
