Hudson river stripers

Postby Riverrunt » Sun Mar 15, 2020 3:50 am

Just checked the river temperature at Albany just under 42 degrees,
Haven't seen any docks go in yet, but it won't be long now ,
I half uncovered my boat yesterday, took some fishing gear off, and put some striper
Gear onboard, getting ready.

At my launch, water is stained, but I have seen it much worse. Tide is going out.

I know very little about fishing for Stripers except what I heard from my dad about him fishing for them(Rockfish) on the Chesapeake growing up in Baltimore in the 40's before that fishery collapsed. What water temp/conditions are you waiting to see?
1978 18' Starcraft SuperSport(White & Green) w/1978 Merc 80hp & 1978 Merc 7.5hp kicker - For fishing w/son.
1981 26' SeaRay Sundancer(Yellow) "Happy Hours" - For "fishing" :D (when I can convince wife and all kids to go).

50 degrees, is when I find the herring and stripers here in the upper part of the Hudson.
There maybe some here earlier than that, but they don't bite for me.
Just checked the temperature it came up today 42.4 , it's looking good for opening day April 1

Theses docks mite go in starting Monday.
Can only hope.

Won't be able to keep a striper like this
This year, throw him back.

You are right Finsntins,
I didn't check the regs., it is 18 to 28 ".
I apologize to everyone for this.
Please check the regs before hitting the water.
My whole point was that you can't keep a large striper anymore on the Hudson.
Hope everyone has their best season ever
And safe boating. RR.
