I have jigged herring under the Berkshire spur bridge, but have never tried further south. I know further north up to the dam it gets easier, but how far down can you jig up herring in the river itself?
The CBC striped bass derby is still on! Be sure to check the NYS DEC website for Hudson River tidal water regulations for these fish, because a new slot limit has changed the legally possessed sizes of these fish. Our contest is the weekend of May 2 and 3. You MUST register in person at the...
