Would there be any stripers in the Shubie and the Stewiack on the first of April ??? I talked to a gentleman last year and he told me that he has got them on the first day of the season , Any truth in that statement ????

I fished a river a few days ago and no sign yet. I believe some fish overwinter in Grand as well (besides the landlocks). They seem to move in there in November. No idea when they move out but I would assume April

Robbie,

Just to clarify, what river were you fishing "a few days ago"? Your post could give the wrong impression (to some) without a little clarity.

ouird,
According to the biologists, there are 2 distinct groups of Striped Bass which may be found in Grand Lake. One group comes in from the salt and then return to the salt. The second population, however, live year round, in the lake. Both populations, I am told, spawn in the same section of the river because of the optimum salinity and current flow. Hope this helps.
Regards....

Robbie,

Which is what I figured, but must make it clear for some of the more "impressionable" members. Wouldn't want anybody thinking they could venture out illegally.

Have already reported some "questionable" anglers.

I was talking to a guy a few years ago and he said there was a study done on the Stripers in Grand. He said there were some that were truly land locked, but some tagged in the fall, stayed the winter and swam out to sea in the spring.
