REPORT YOUR RECREATIONAL STRIPED BASS FISHING - The Fisherman

REPORT YOUR RECREATIONAL STRIPED BASS FISHING

Help collect valuable fishing data on stripers in New York by participating in the Striped Bass Cooperative Angler (SBCA) Program. Anglers can submit catch data and scale samples that will be analyzed by NYSDEC staff to determine the age of the striped bass you caught. This information is reported back to participants and is also shared in an annual newsletter at the end of each season. For more details or to participate in the SBCA program, contact us at the information below:
