I am there now, just getting ready to go out, I mainly troll with my umbrellas using 4โ€-5โ€ swim baits. I have heard some have been catching on top. Will find out shortly.

It depends on whether the lake is connected to a river or not. If it's not you should be able to catch them all year round. However, if it is connected to a river the hybrid stripers usually run with the white bass through the creek systems to spawn, in that case, it would be over (the white bass run lasts from early March to early April). Stripers can't spawn because the water is not turbulent enough to hatch their eggs. Hopes this helps. cool

Partially correct, hybrids donโ€™t spawn. Stripers do spawn on some lakes. Texoma for one, maybe possium kingdom, and I believe whitney has a limited amount of spawn, just my opinion. Whitney some stripers go 10-12 miles up river during spawn.

According to stocking records, Lake Whitney has never been stocked with hybrid stripers. Plenty of striper stockings. Hybrid striped bass generally cannot naturally reproduce, so their numbers depend on the number of fish stocked. In the spring, hybrids may undergo spawning migrations to upstream areas into reservoirs in an attempt to spawn despite being sterile. The average lifespan is between five to six years.
