Fishing Report

DELAWARE BAY It has not been a great spring season for keeper rockfish in the lower Delaware River and Upper Bay. The constant rain and wind have made for dirty water as well as discouraging many anglers from even going fishing. A scattering of keepers has been caught at the Yellow Can, 4L and 6L buoys, the Augustine Jetty, Dobbinsville and the pier at Woodland Beach. Bunker chunks and bloodworms have been the prime baits. It is still possible that there are some large females left in the river, but I find it more likely that all have gotten past during the bad weather. Not that it makes us feel any better, but the trophy season in the Upper Chesapeake was not that good either.

Dirty water, high winds and rain continue to hamper the striped bass bite in the Upper Bay and Lower Delaware River. Even when the weather allows boaters to get out, the dirty water has made catching difficult. Some success was reported at the 6L and 7L buoys on cut bunker used as bait and chum.
