New England - South Shore Massachusetts to Maine Fishing Reports

New England Video Fishing Forecast February 9, 2023

It’s been a bit of a lean week as far as reports go, but the arctic front that blasted New England with ‘once in a decade’ cold, built up some safe ice from the innumerable lakes of Maine through interior Massachusetts and parts of the northwest corner of Connecticut. In keeping with this winter’s trends, we saw a rapid ascension back to temps topping in the mid-40’s with Friday promising to eclipse 50 degrees! Angling opportunities are plentiful across the region from jigging the ice for lakers in Maine, to soaking bait for trout on the Cape, to hunting Sebago salmon in Rhody and drifting jigs in Housatonic for stripers in Connecticut. We don’t see too many mild Februaries, so take advantage!
