Water levels continue to rise and are above bank full stage in New London. The river has also cooled off to around 35 degrees, which should combine with muddy, fast conditions to provide some challenge to the fishing. They might not bite real aggressively but rising water and longer days have the fish on the move. The thunder storms in the area shook the system good and that’s always a sign to get out and fish. Because they are on the move up stream and driven by temperature to enter a marsh somewhere and spawn, look for the bite to change a bit on a day to day basis. BE CAREFUL as there is still some ice coming down the river out of the backwaters and I’ve seen a large number of logs and trees floating this year. Be careful, fish near flooded woods and shallow marshy areas with and you should catch some fish.
