I went in a creek mouth by catskill NY.   I was hoping to catch a trout with rooster tails.  Usually a herring will whack one or atleast chase it within my sight.   Nothing yet.  Forgot my thermometer.

 

USGS in poughkeepsie is close.   I dont seem to have much luck over the years below 48 degrees.  It's 45 over there.......   

 

Not sure how much wandering south I want to go with corona virus, but I am tempted to launch down poughkeepsie early next week.

Tell your legislator. NYS says it’s legal to take one fish daily between 18-28”! Whose harvesting anyway, I’ve released every fish I’ve caught this year.

You came, by airplane, from Florida to New York, on Tuesday, March 31st and instead of being home, in self-isolation, you are outside fishing.

I don't understand

Went armed with minnows and rooster tails at mouth of creek by catskill.

 

Smallmouth were on fire.  Landed 5, but could of landed 10 if I had someone with me.  Tough to get at a 10ft salmon rod.

 

Guy next to me caught 2 stripers on rubber jigs.  As per bait shop,  they're catching schoolies in kingston.

 

Think the run is gonna be 2 or 3 weeks early.  We will see if mother nature's agrees.   A lot of the spawn has to so with winter melt run offs and rain events.  River get muday and a bit cooler, bass hunker down.  Good clarity and temps, they keep going up.

Read and weep the NYS regulations are just stupid. We will never get the bass population back if the regulations are as lax as they are.

Personally.   I know alot of people who fish the hudson in the spring.  Many typical average joe fishermen catch several smaller fish, handle them improperly and too long, then just chuck em back.   A few will keep them on a string until they catch a nicer one.....

 

The folks who want a bass meal will be doing less damage with this regulation......

 

I'm in the river almost daily.......  But, keep two or three.  Usually the ones who got gills bleeding.......
