Weekly Fishing Report: Oct. 11, 2017

Recent warm weather has caused Chesapeake Bay and tidal river water temperatures to be rather stagnant this week.

Water temperatures in all three regions of the bay are holding around 73 degrees to 75 degrees and the tidal rivers are running about 3-5 degrees cooler.

It is going to take a prolonged cool front to drive water temperatures down to the upper 60s, which will then cause baitfish to move out of the tidal rivers and into the bay.

Striped bass will be waiting for them and hopefully the fall fishery for Maryland’s state fish will finally kick into gear.
