Striper fishing slowing down in Piscataqua River

Capt. Joel Koch
September 20, 2010
Portsmouth - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing Report Week Ending 9/19/10
Striper fishing is really slowing down in the Piscataqua.
There are still some fish around but we only caught a few over the last couple of days. Last weekend the fishing was still good with a mixed bag of stripers and sea bass caught. This is around the time when the fishing slowed down last year. Prior to last year the fishing remained good for another few weeks.
Maybe a few nice warm days will help the fishing improve. Wed. is supposed to be 80 degrees so hopefully that will help. .
Yesterday, we came across a good size school of very small tinker mackerel in the bay. Unusual to find them that far up river, makes me think there were not a lot of stripers around to chase em.. I will try to catch a few over the next few days and use them for live bait to see if live bait will entice more stripers to bite.
Still willing to do some more trips with the knowledge that it will be a fun day on the water with just a couple of fish caught.. Oh yea, the leaves are starting to change in places which makes for a colorful time to be out..
On a very special note, I had a metal artist make me a Wall Hanging of a Striped Bass.
The artist Jeff Kirby of Western Metal Art
website www.torchcraft.com did an incredible job.
Jeff had never done a Striper before but was up to the task, this is heavy metal, weighing almost 10 lbs and is just beautiful. What a great way to preserve a fishing memory..
