Fishing Meetup, Sunday, Oct 23, 2016, 9 AM to 1 PM. Ed Grzeda will lead an outing on the Long Island Sound at Pennfield Reef in Fairfield. Sign up at Nutmeg’s Meetup.com page here. Meet at the beach at the base of the reef off Fairfield Beach Road to fish the outgoing and low tides. A map of Long Island Sound fishing spots can be found here. Click on the map markers in Fairfield (or in the left navigation bar) to find Pennfield Reef. Lighthouse Point is a small road and public access point off Fairfield Beach Road between beach homes that will take you straight to the reef. Street parking available on Reef Rd and Fairfield Beach Rd (east of Reef Rd). Stripers will be making their Fall run and the reef is an excellent spot for both Fly and Spin anglers. Last year we had 30”+ Bluefish crashing the Peanut Bunker as well. Waders make things easier but casting from shore or the reef as it is exposed by the outgoing tide is also possible. Fly anglers should bring an 8-10 weight rod. Intermediate sinking lines are ideal or floating lines for poppers. Standard flies include Clousers, Deceivers and other Saltwater baitfish patterns.
