|Details:||Went out of Salmon Cove this morning, hoping to see some herring running and the first migratory stripers. No luck with that in the Haddam area, but I caught everything else. I think this may be the most species I've landed in a day outside of FL; pickerel, yellow perch, largemouth, smallmouth, bluegill, crappy, catfish and a nice fat pre-spawn pike. One of the pickerel stuck me in the palm with a treble. Also met NWDARKCLOUD at the landing. Despite the lack of stripers, a really enjoyable morning. HOWEVER, WE NEED THE RAIN!!!! Chapman's was very productive, but the lack of water has left the old outflow pretty stagnant with far fewer fish than just a month ago.
