Summer Slot Season Is Underway
Striped bass fishing has changed up in the Delaware Bay for the summer. It is now striped bass summer slot season. The slot limit for Delaware Bay and its tributaries is 20 – 25 inches and 2 fish per angler. The season lasts from July 1 to August 31.
The Lewes Canal is also a Delaware bay tributary from the Freeman Highway bridge to the Roosevelt Inlet. Canary Creek, Broadkill River, Mispillion River, Murderkill River etc are all tributaries. The entire Delaware bay is under this slot season. These are the best sized striped bass to eat in my opinion.
