A late spring, one with high water levels and cool water temperatures, will keep fish in the river longer. Spring and early summer stripers are found in shallow water, usually from 3 to 8 feet deep.
Well we certainly have the conditions for this. I drove over the Port Jervis Bridge and the river is at 42.9. It doesnt look as bad as I thought it would, although a nearby golfcourse in Mattamoras is underwater. It actually looks part of the river.
