Late April and May
Just behind the Shad Run, as the herring make their way up the Delaware, come the striped bass to feed on them.
As Jim Harris (seen in the picture) reports:
Striper season at Trenton will start as soon as the water warms up a bit. You need the water temp at or above 50 degrees to spark the bite…. Our best action has been in late April and all of May. You will know things are getting active when you see all the boats in the water fishing for herring right below the bridges and beside Kat-Man-Do.
