Well there are plenty of bass in the Rivers and some are located down low in the tidal section and move up with the tide. There are schools that move up and stay in the upper sections and interact only on the incoming tide.
Very fickle year for bass. my best fish this year is only a 36 inch bass and I have not caught those plenty of fish like I normally do, but I have not put my time in either.
That being said, with the Full moon tide on Saturay (start 2pm, high 3pm) and dirty for hours; it should start to pick up with prespawn feeding activity.
Normally this full moon and the next new moon (2 wks) spawning activity should be present with increase temperatures. Look for splashing on the falling tides in the evenings.
Today tide should be coming in at Stewiacke approx 11:30 am and at 11:50 pm and the water will be getting higher and coming in quicker and will stay dirty longer until after the tides on the weekends.
Another indicator of spawning will the appearance of June Bugs. Both emergence of June Bugs and Bass Spawn are independent events but both are temperature related and happen within days of each other.
So keep an eye out for June Bugs.
Slow activity is related to cooler temps but find the Bass is the key, and they seem to move with the tide (lower sections) as well as when the tide hits several schools seem to setttle in the pools up higher waiting for that magic temperature and the incoming tide to do their thing
