Bad news for guys hoping the C&R season was going to be extended to 5/15...... Time to hit the Del Bay.


Susquehanna Flats Catch & Release Fishery for Striped Bass to Close as Scheduled

The Striped Bass Catch and Release Fishery on the Susquehanna Flats will close as scheduled at midnight, May 3. Recreational angler groups had appealed to DNR?s Sportfish Advisory Commission requesting an extension; however, due to increasing water temperatures, the fishery will close as previously scheduled. When striped bass are caught and released into freshwater areas above 65 degrees, mortality increases significantly. Based upon temperature data, Conowingo Dam flow data and forecasted weather conditions, the 65 degree threshold is projected to be exceeded later this week.

dnr renegged on what it said previously. the closure was supposed to take place when water temps at 2 seperate monitoring stations hit 65 degrees on 2 consecutive days. now they they prematurely close it based on "projections"....oh well, the dnr giveth, the dnr taketh away...
