Default Tracking The Herring and Water Temperatures. 2008 Season

Checked last night, nothing up here yet.

It was a low high tide last night about 3.5 feet, air was warmer than water at about 45, very light mist, water in tributary despite a day of rain was clearer than I expected. Spent about an hour streamside checking out the surface and listening to night sounds an occasional car, and a train.

Water temp still too cold but its supposed to be in the 50-60 the next few days and hopefully it will get the ball rolling.

Check back

Default Re: Herring in The Hudson

its a function of water temperature where I was the other night it was 39 at best, its got to be over 40 degrees at the mouth of the Hudson for the herring to begin their upriver migration. Just need about a week of warm weather.

If you go to this site, you can get the temp for the hudson itself and the esopus as well. Just type the temp into the conversion at the top of the page and it will convert it for you. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the Roundout. Sorry. http://waterdata.usgs.gov/ny/nwis/cu...p_key=basin_cd

Thanks very much. I would guess the Esopus would make a decent comparison for the Rondout.

rookie question that I could answer myself with about 100 hours of trying the hard way: are bass far behind chasing the herring? I've always thought the magic number for bass was 50 degrees fahrenheit, but I have caught them in lower temps . . . .

They certainly feed more actively when the temps reach the low fifties, but they do bite when the water is colder. They don't seem to like to work for their meals when it's that cold and that's why most of us Hudson River boys like to use cut shad/herring early in the spring. A quick easy meal that they don't have to chase is just the ticket.Also remember this: The only stupid question is the one you don't ask.
