Hi Eddy

I would say as soon as the water temps are at 50. Right now they are probably 44 to 46. Colder furthur north with the snow runoff.

Your in luck. The Raritan bay and the hudson river are as good as anywhere. The word is great fishing for stripers and huge blues in the summer. Jersey City and the New York harbor are excellent striper grounds. I fish east and west of the Verrezanno narrows. I love NY. :P

Striper Jim, Thanks for the positive feed back.

Are the fish healthy?

Can you eat them or is there a no eat range around the Verrezanno?

Comming out from under the Verrezanno Bridge whats the nearest fishing and wrecks should I run EAST or WEST? any advice would be appreciated. (I not asking for your super secret spot, Just the area next to it.)

It's a 16 mile run to sandy hook, I'd like to run a little closer.


PS Oh I forgot is it dangerouse running in and out of the Harbor from Jersey City :?:

Most of the fish I've seen are healthy. The Hudson River strain hasnt had the mycobacteriosis. I've seen a few undersized fish with sores but not very many. I usually keep 1 or 2 fish per year to eat. Above the Tappen Z bridge in the Hudson is 18 inches. The younger fish are better eating. The 28 inch limit applies everywhere else. The 36 I ate last year was delicious. 8) This year I may even keep more to eat. My brother (striperdawg) and his friends barbeque daily. He's not glowing in the dark at least not yet.

Try the two channel edges and the shoals. There are plenty of visible rip lines. All productive. Early season clams and worms. Later spring use bunker and of course different plugs at different tides and conditions.

Default fly fishing the hudson

Anyone have any tips for flyfishing the Hudson? I work in Tarrytown, right next to the Tappan Zee bridge and am looking for a place I can head after work....

Any suggestions in the area would be helpful. I just started fishing for stripers last year and had a little success in the Stamford area.

Default Check out Piermont

Downstream of Piermont just below the TapanZee Bridge is the Hudsons only saltwater tidal marsh, that would be the first place I check since you are so close, Sparkill creek runs through it and it may have herring so its a good bet. I've always wanted to check it out but its a way to go for me on a possible wild goose chase, a lot of early stripers are caught off the pier at Piermont by our bait fishisng brethern, usually on bloodworms. Post here how you make out. Also north of you at Croton Point Park, both ends egg rock at north end southern tip have big rips but be careful wading.

Default The sound of a good flushing

Well heavy rain on the way and so the adirondacks will get its chrome handle jiggled and the flush will bring whats left of the snow and debris into the hudson by sunday and through mid-week. Yuck. But I don't pick up the boat at Anderson's till Wed. anyway. And I still have to mount the Cannon DRs and like that. Hope to get on the water next weekend, Otsego Lake maybe.
