Connecticut Island Outfitters

Capt. Roger Gendron Westport, CT Licensed Insured

Come explore the acres of skinny flats off the coast of Westport, Connecticut with Connecticut Island Outfitters! The many rips and reefs that are found along the shoreline and islands off the Western Connecticut coast offer prime fly fishing and light tackle fishing opportunities. 

 

You’ll be guided by Captain Roger Gendron, a seasoned angler with over 40 years of experience fishing the waters of Western Long Island Sound. Capt. Roger first began fishing the coast of Fairfield County over 40 years ago and was one of the first guides in the area to specialize in fly fishing shallow saltwater. He has also instructed advanced navigation courses and continues to tutor new boaters and newcomers to the area. Captain Roger Gendron’s focus is on his clients’ safety, and on providing an enjoyable experience for everyone on board. 

 

Connecticut Island Outfitters offers 4hr trips and 6 hour trips for up to 4 anglers. Captain Roger will provide everyone on board with high quality, top brand light tackle or fly-fishing gear if needed. If you have a favorite rod/ reel combo, you’re encouraged to bring it! For fly fisherman, Captain Roger recommends 8 or 9 weight fly rods, and sinking lines are the most productive. Once you book your trip, you’ll be in direct contact with Captain Roger, you can ask for advice regarding the best line for the conditions you’ll be fishing! 

 

Captain Roger Gendron maintains a pristine, well-kept 22’ Bay boat built in 2006. She’s powered by a single 250hp Yamaha F250. Her shallow draft allows Connecticut Island Outfitters to fish waters with depths as little as 1ft. This means Captain Roger has access to areas with very low fishing pressure, meaning more bites for you! These skinny flats offer anglers the chance to sight cast at the local Striped Bass and Bluefish found off the coast of Westport. Get ready for ferocious strikes off the surface! 

 

Connecticut Island Outfitter’s charter seasons begins in April and continues steadily into November. The fishing conditions are rough during the Winter months, so we don’t offer charters during this time.
