fish are settling down and becoming a bit more predictable."
Fishing Conditions: The schools of striped bass in the river are starting to settle into typical summer routines. New schools are showing up too. Water flow will be moderate this week. Clarity is good especially in the lower river.
Type of bait fish are feeding on: Sand eels, Juvenile sea herring, River herring, Alewives, American eel, menhaden, adult sea herring
Water temperature inshore: 65*
Water temperature offshore:58*
7 day outlook: The forecast calls for dry and sunny conditions the first part of the week Water clarity and flow will be average.
Best techniques: There's still some need for exploration but the fish are settling down and becoming a bit more predictable. Birds and your sounder will show you where they are.
My tips of the week: Watch for birds and cast under them even if there are no stripers breaking. Sometimes they are feeding under the surface.
