    First Striper of the Season (pic)

    Baby Striped Bass | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    Between Sandy and the recent flooding, this fish somehow made its way into a stream in Northern NJ. Never thought I'd see anything like this in my life. Not a hybrid either, this looked to be an authentic baby striper. Not sure how it is surviving in freshwater. Caught, Photographed and Released.

    bass spawn in tidal rivers such as the hudson when the fry are hatched they will stay up theses rivers for a year or so till they reach about the size of the one you have there 10-12 inches its not uncommon at all to find them in fresh or brackish water at that age...there are lots of creeks and feeder streams that connect to theses river back when i was young there is a stream in colts neck we would trout fish at and catching a bass that size there was not uncommon

    they survive just fine in fresh water. Not just when mating but all year round. I catch stripers in the Delaware year round. Not as much as during the run but some do call it home. Pretty cool catch in a stream though

    That's HUGE for a non spawning Striper, I don't usually catch them that big down here in Palmyra but I definitely catch adults year round, I assume that they are residents since they are adults and being caught during the summer. Still must be an exciting catch in a stream if you're not expecting it..heck, It's still exciting to catch them where you DO expect to.

    Going to be an interesting season from the looks of things. These storms have changed the entire underwater structure from fresh to salt water.

    There are plenty of Stripers year round in the Delaware River of all sizes and some big trophy bass also especially for the guys who use to liveline Herring when it was still legal to catch the herring*
