Lots of 3 to 4 lb. fish being taken out of Bridgeport, the norm though would run between 1 & 2 lbs.

The Reservoir is still producing lots of really nice fish these days. There's been some action up in the inlet channels but it seems that the best action is still out in the middle. The fish still seem to be moving around a bit due to the water temperatures remaining moderate (at least compared to the norm for this time of year).

There's been a fair number of 3 to 4 pound fish being caught though most are in the 1 to 2 pound range. Bait fishing and trolling seem to be the best way to go lately. I haven't heard much about fly fishing lately though it seems like the midges aren't hatching out in the numbers they usually do this time of year. The best baits have been crawlers and power bait or gulp eggs and for trolling you can go with small rapalas, excel lures, thomas bouyants and needlefish.
