Guide's Boat

Among the best in the fleet, our 22' Ranger is swift and stealthy. She fishes shallow flats but rides like a limo. You'll love fishing from this boat.

Description

Connecticut Island Outfitters specializes in fly and light tackle fishing, primarily in shallow salt water along the shoreline and islands off the Western Connecticut coast. The many reefs and rips that form along this tidal area, offer prime fly casting to Striped Bass, Bluefish, and other species depending on the season, such as False Albacore and Bonito. Acres of skinny flats offer anglers the opportunity to sight-cast to fish in as little as a foot of water, and draw ferocious strikes off the surface.

Our Charter season begins in May and continues steadily through November. High quality, top brand tackle is provided for fly fishing or a light tackle adventure, but we encourage you to bring your favorite rod/reel combo. 8 or 9 weight fly rods are best, and sinking lines are the most productive. Call for advice regarding the best line for the conditions you will be fishing.

There is plenty of storage for your gear, so be sure to pack sunglasses and sunscreen, a jacket, camera, and a snack. There is a cooler with ice for your drinks, and complimentary bottled water on board.
