Made the run myself, had a couple follows at the power plant. Stopped down by the coffee Run overlook and saw that the stripers were slashing bait sporadically. Guess it's coming.

Sounds good. Keep us posted, i've been thinking about maybe getting a charter there and see how it's done. It's certainly closer than the jersey shore. See you on the other forums.

'm heading down this saturday, for my first experience running the boards in the spring. I just started fishing for stripers last year, I've learned alot, but yet to hook up... what do you guys recommend for live bait ??? should i throw for gizzards or can i get away with shiners and suckers... I called Scott's for some trout but he might not have any yet... any input would be great.... thanks

I would either throw for gizzards or go out at night for alewife, one or the other.

They are pretty much every where now, you have to take your cast net and throw at either aitch or shy beaver, the shad are there. I would look for the birds now, they know where the food is.

They are above the bridge, was down at the power plant Thurs, evening and their were quite a few people pitching bucktails and plugs. The water is high now, I would say later this week things should heat up.

Just checked the inflow/outflow for the dam, she running in at close to 5000 cfs which is over the banks. The hydro station is pumping at over 4000 cfs guess we'll look at it next Sunday.

The river is still blown out now, and Sat. they want an inch of rain. We'll be blown out for another week and a half or so.

Went up yesterday, they are there and they are hungry also. Taking plugs and flukes. You need to watch the river levels though they come up quick.
