Default 2020 HERRING TRACKING REPORTs

We can use this thread to track Herring movements up the river.




Let us know when you start seeing them ... General location or county is fine, no need to give up your specific honey holes.


Thank you!

Theyíre in there. Might as well wait until the river warms up a couple degrees. Youíll likely catch more than herring. I stopped yesterday and left almost immediately. Total zoo.

They are in the posty. Not many but they are there. The only problem is that there is more trash fishing it then trash in the river

Catskill area I had no luck casting a stoolie in a creek. I wasn't trying to net, but using it to catch a striper I saw. The 24 incher or so spit the hook before I could grab him. Didn't have a net.

A kid who regulars that spot had herring chase a stoolie. He had luck with catching stripers on them. 18-24" range.

The usual suspects of boats I see often where in the good spot in the catskill doing their thing..... Thery would be using bloodworms if they weren't successful. So, I am assuming they're there too.

Also, germantown and catskill parks and launches are not blocked. However, no floating docks. Bring a buddy n waders... Boats were going in and out without being hassled by taurus' with spot lights going by....... This was catskill.

Going to try tuesday with the boat, maybe pedal kayak the creek..... Chocolate milk will probably go on till saturday.

The river is dirty and cold...no sun...usually need a little sun and 2í water clarity to jig from the river. My experience at least. Iím usually in the area from Albany to Troy. Iíve seen it where they seem to disappear from the creek but Iím pretty sure theyíre in there. Get the rig deep. Bounce the bottom. You may lose a couple rigs but youíll quickly find out where the garbage is on the bottom. Good luck

that’s what I was thinking as well they are there but just laying there. I will wait til the main river heats up the 1st run of blue backs was just a teaser.

Swung by the Poestenkill after work today. 6-8 people standing shoulder to shoulder... no masks. I kept on driving. Thatís the fastest way to end our season.
