Yeah I know about the forecasted rain... that is why I was hoping to sneak out tomorrow for the first time. Coupled with weak cold front may as well go to work?

6-10" of visibility at Albany yesterday afternoon. I couldn't jig any bait out of the river. Plenty of activity on the ff but, the trip turned into more of a scouting mission. Males and herring at 15-20' females and a few herring around 30-35'. Hopefully Wednesday will be a river recovery day and then back at it Thursday. Water temp was 58.

Went over the Hoosick St Bridge and not a single boat in sight either way. Too high and rough

Thanks for the info .... with the inch of rain coming in the next day or two we are done for another week or so at least. My college buddy who cancelled his trip is now coming next winter after sending him youtube videos of jigging lakers on Lake George!

Cooler water temps probably put the spawn on hold and the feed bag on. I haven't been to the dam but, it sure sounds tempting now! Live, chunk, jigs what's working?

for all the boats fishing around and below the Dun Memorial bridge yesterday, I'd wonder why they were not further up closer to the dam if they were crushing the fish..
In well over 40 years fishing stripers , this is the WORST season in my experience.. From the fish I have seen being caught so far they are many under the slot and being considered "keepers" , not released for another day.
The conditions are Lousy out there , have been since Mondays storm and don't look to improve in the next week or so..
We tried jigging by the U-Haul in Albany for about 6 hrs. With the Many, many boats , including at least 3 charters I could identify , we seen ONE , yes 1 herring caught. My screen was completely blank the entire time.
Water temp dropped from 59 on weds to 56 Thursday.

Using chunk has proven useless to us. In every and any spot we must have caught every turd (catfish) in the river. It don't matter how you slice or dice the bait , fresh or frozen, the turds wouldn't stay away..

Those who are doing well , congratulations but it is few and far there are any consistent catches going on out there IMO.
Something is amiss , be it bait or numbers of stripers .

As for conditions . Charters I know are cancelling paid trips. If they are not going out fishing which is their livelihood, you know conditions are POOR at best.

Accurate assessment in my book RJ ..... my only hope is that this is just more of a typical year like we used to see where fishing didn't really get going until right about now and once the water clears after today's rain there might be a good window to catch some fish.

I certainly don't doubt Doc though because he obviously is a talented and dedicated striper fisherman. Even if fish are being caught i hate fishing at the dam or Bruno's with all of the people / drama and i don't even like being on the river when it's running high and dirty.

I agree with conditions, we marked a bunch of fish and we were lucky to get enough herring to fish, they were jumping all over from 8-930 am yesterday, for the amount of boats no one is getting much. Worst season for me in the past 6 yrs. I don't doubt for a second fish are here but it's not worth all the time put in, yet!!
