Striper fishing has been good to bad...Fall can be some of the best fishing of the year if you are fishing on the right day. We see some amazingly large fish caught and at times multiple ones on a given day. That said the fish seem very moody and temperamental during the fall as weather patterns, pressure fronts, air and water temps can fluctuate. Water temps are down in the mid to high 50s and I find that fish in these temps go on the feed for very small windows ... maybe 30-45 minutes throughout the day and some times not every day. That said if you are in the right place at the right time it can be epic. A week ago we caught a 21lbs, 10lbs, 14lbs, and 8lbs fish all in about 30minutes in the same half mile of river then struggled to find fish the rest of the day....definitely not the type of fishing that everyone is into but if you are interested in hunting big stripers in the rivers in shallow water this is the time to do it.
