Fishing for Striped Bass

Striped Bass

Striper fishing is best, in my opinion, from the start of the non-tidal river up to Bulls Island wing dam. However, they are abundant in the tidal section of the river but I don't fish there and have no knowledge on how to catch them there. Also, they have been caught as far upstream as the Delaware Water Gap. The month of June is the best time for striper fishing. Using plugs in the early morning hours and live bait during the day will produce the best results.

My favorite spot for striper fishing is from the Yardley boat ramp up to the Scudder Falls dam. This area, around the I-95 overpass, is perhaps the best spot on the river for stripers. The river here contains areas of flats, eddies, deep holes , still water, and turbulent waters where stripers swim.
