Conditions : LAKE PLEASANT: (Lake elevation 1,697 feet, 94 % full).

Time to strip the old line off the reels, get your lucky hat on, and get spring fishing!

The last month the striper bite as not been ideal and very inconsistent. The water temps really did not climb or maintain a warmer temperature for the month of March. The water temp at Lake Pleasant is finally staying in the 64-67-degree range.

The females are full of fully developed eggs and the males are leaking.

The last week the bite has really improved. Whereas last month most anglers reported only catching and average of 3-7 fish daily, that has now increased to 11-30 (or more) fish during a trip.

Last month live shad seemed to be the only consistent method producing fish on a slow bite. Lately anglers are reporting frozen anchovies, silver Kastmasters, plastic swimbaits, and top-water lures as producing good results.

I think the next 2-3 weeks will produce moderate-to-good fishing conditions for striper. Northern coves are still recommended for best results.

Anglers are catching fish in 20-48 feet of total water depth and still having success cast-netting shad in 4-8 feet of water.

Recommended swimbait colors would be sexy shad, white, smoking grey, money shot and baits with some chartreuse color in them. The night bite is slowly picking up and night fishing will become more popular moving into future months. If using anchovies, don’t forget to chum.
