I have never had luck with Sabikis in the main river from what I read the water is to cold for using them right now. I can always use a hand running a gill net I launch in germantown

Here is today's River Basin Report:

HUDSON RIVER FISHING UPDATE – Sunday, April 9, 2017

GAME ON! STRIPERS!

In Troy?Sure, so it seems. We’ve received a couple of different reports of stripers taken from that cold, muddy off-colored water up there. A couple of days ago even though the water temperature at the dam was 41 (dropped to 40 for this morning) the fish decided that they weren’t going to hold back any longer and made the move up. A wee bit further downriver, at Bethlehem’s Henry Hudson Park, a 19 ¼ inch keeper was taken on the season’s opening weekend using cut bait. There are no launch floats in the water there as of yet.
.
We haven’t heard much from the section south of Bethlehem to Athens but across the river from Catskill the shore bound anglers at the end of Greendale Road have had some success with smaller fish. So have the guys fishing the stretch of east shore between Germantown and Cheviot. We haven’t heard much from Saugerties but it sure seems that the stripers should be active there. In Kingston the Rondout Creek has both herring and stripers and the action has been reported as good. A little bit further down river in the Port Ewen area the shore anglers off River Road are also scoring. Most fish being caught now are smaller “schoolie” fish.
.
It seems that bait has still been the biggest hang up for the anglers. Here at the River Basin Sports Shop we’ve been getting fishermen from as far away as Poughkeepsie coming in to buy bloodworms and herring.
.
Even though there are some herring in our section of the river they have been extremely hard to come by. Since the flowage is still running very dirty our bait suppliers so far have been unable to bring us any of this year’s herring to sell as bait. Fortunately, we had a reasonable amount of frozen bait left over from last year’s run so there was something to sell the guys to put on their hooks (we are now sold out of herring). We also have bloodworms in the store but this year’s first delivery has been a little bit disappointing – kind of small size. Still – better than a bare hook. The fresh herring supply should be much improved by next weekend.
.
The water conditions are improving very quickly. Yesterday the Catskill Creek was a muddy mess but today it actually looked pretty good. In another day or two it should be just about back to normal. The river too is improving but it’s going to take another week or more to become what one might call respectable. And, right along with these improvements we’re expecting some good sized schools of herring to start arriving this week. Your sabikis and stoolies should finally start to produce good results.
.
In the meantime we’ve got some gorgeous looking days ahead this week. The upcoming weather appears to be perfect for you to get out there on the water and get this 2017 fishing season started. Good luck.Tom G

Checked out the Poestenkill Creek for herring yesterday around high tide...nothing. The water is still very high in Albany/Troy but the creek was clearing up. About 1.5-2 feet of visibility.

Saw quite a bit of herring action in tributaries between poughkeepsie and Newburgh. Nothing following but lots of busting on the shore. Definitely a good sign

Crossed the Castleton Bridge today, river looked about normal for this time of year. No heavy rain in the forcast. Will go for a shakedown cruise in a few days, report back. Last year I sabikied my first herring on the 18th at the underground stream in Albany.
