I'm sure the big ones are there. Last year I was crushing stripers in the lake but that all ended once those flood gates opened. PK had two more floods this fall so more went out.
Back in the summer, the stripers were very thin below the dam. I caught a limit of keepers on perch and must have caught 30 or more that were under 18 ".They looked like Dachau prisoners on their last legs. I'm sure the stripers will get nice and fat now that the state is feeding them trout.
John 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee.
