What happens if it rains?

  • Bring RAIN GEAR

What happens if a lighting storm is in the forecast?

  • It is at the captain's discretion to either fish or postpone the trip

  • In the spring and summer storms move through quickly and we can be fishing with little interruption

  • After and during rain can be the best fishing

What happens if the river is blown out from rain?

  • If the river is muddy or blown out the captain will decide to fish or postpone

  • A plugging trip can turn into a bait trip

  • A shad trip can turn into a striper trip using bait

What happens if I book a striper trip and its postpone and the run is over?

  • We can move up the river to find stripers

  • You are booking a fishing trip so you need to be flexible with species if the striper run is over
