Spring melt

6 posts in this topic

Just curious about how these late storms will affect the rivers come spring with the melt. Does more run off help our cause regarding bait and our stripers?

This is actually something I Ike to keep a eye on every year, if we keep this snow for a few more weeks I would say yes. 

 

More runoff = more bait in the spring - slightly colder water = a fun time on top WAter.    :rav:

Yup, I agree. More runnoff more herring find their way home,and quicker. Last spring we had a good runnoff and the herring arrived the second week of May.

Area rivers all the way down to pittsburgh and Philly look low to me this year.  The Merrimack looks really low to me.  We NEED to get more snow to pull in the bait this spring.  Shad season starts in just a few weeks!

Shad is another species where good flow and current is important. But not flood stage. :cool:
