The run is nothing like it used to be. I fish the river from Hartford on down to Old Saybrook. The most consistent fishing is on the lower end of the river. We use a lot of big plastics like Houdini Shads and Slug-Gos. Bombers, especially at night are good. You can't go wrong with Danny Swimmers around sunrise and when the water warms up we throw a lot of top waters. Concentrate on the flats. 10 feet of water or less will be the most productive
