Striped Bass Are On The Move

Over the last few days striped bass have been moving up the Delaware Bay into the Delaware River.  These are most likely resident fish, but they are females full of eggs, and big.  No one has seen any sea lice on them which is a good sign to identify ocean striped bass. The Nanticoke river is seeing the same activity, with spawning females heading up river from the Chesapeake bay.

The bass in the Chesapeake bay are moving into areas to spawn.   The fun yet annoying part of migratory fish is figuring out when they are going to show up . . .
