TIDAL STRIPERS

Posted By J. B. Kasper, October 2, 2017
 Water temps in some waters jumped into the low 80s and the fall bite that started up was put on hold until late in the week, when more fall like weather made an appearance. Largemouth fishing continued to be hit or miss depending on the water you were fishing. Smallmouth fishing remained good in streams and rivers, while crappie fishing continued to be an evening bite in most waters. Stream conditions are still good and it looks like the fall stocking won’t have problems with low water conditions this year. Tidal rivers are seeing a pretty good amount of small stripers, and plenty of herring, shad and other baitfish are on their fall migrations. Walleye fishing is on the upswing in some waters, while hybrid fishing has gotten spotty. Catfish, carp and panfish are serving up good catches in most waters. Rounding out this week prospects for some additional action are muskies, northerns and pickerel.
