Your right jigging will be tough... In the main river. Stoolign them is harder early in the year than jigging. They run deep in the river when the water is cold so the best spot to target them is a creek where they gather, with a jig. The main reason jigging is tough now... Not enough fish yet. Once those first waves come through jigging will be the go to methods until the water warms up. Not sure on the previous posters train of thought on this.

On topic... I jigged In he esopus creek yesterday and left with just a nibble. Was down there during a high tide that was on it's way out.

I have always been told that herring won't hit the sabiki rigs until the water hits 50 or so. My experience confirms that.

I did see many herring snagged on sabikis in the Poestenkill last year when they first showed up.

Everyone thinks that the herring won't be here until the water hits 50 which i don't agree with. I have seen herring show up in Troy with water in the low 40's on multiple occasions.

I agree with the guys above ... 50 is about the key temp when we start jigging them in the main river. The coldest we have jigged them is 47-deg water and that was only a few.

We do better with stoolie method until jigging picks up.







And here is where we stand as of right now ....

I was referring to in the creeks during the earliest parts of the run. In the creeks with a jig is probably the best way to catch those first few until the temps increase and the run gets going

how heavy a weight do u use for the stoolie rig. I have one and haven't had a follower yet. went out for a little bit today, nothing. I know its early, but I feel it needs to run deeper, especially from a 10 foot wall

Still waiting on herring down in Croton. net guys down there have a VERY slow pick going. The run is a week behind last year, and about 3-4 weeks behind a normal year. Water temp in Croton was 39.9 on most of the river
