Stripers are being caught in the Danvers River. They're here.

Anyone hooking up?

Danvers River? Are they holdovers or migratory? It seems too early - RI just got their first healthy dose of stripers this week.

They are catching schoolies in the Merrimack. I caught my first fish on may 5th of last year in extreme southern Maine. I would guess they are only days away.

I fish right out of the park and wade in. There's always a good amount of guys throwing plugs or clams there after work, but I've never seen anyone hook up without a fly

I fish from the Salem side near the Kernwood Bridge. I've never seen anyone there.

Nothing this morning. Fished from 6:45 till 8:30. two hours before the high tide. No birds, nothing in the water from what I could see. Just mud.

I heard people are catching them right out in Pope's Landing. I'm heading out later tonight again
