The Secretary of Maryland Department of Natural Resources pursuant to Code of Maryland Regulation 08.02.15.12(I) has announced that it will extend the Susquehanna Flats catch and release fishery for striped bass by one week. The fishery, originally scheduled to close on May 3, will remain open until midnight on Friday, May 9th.
Cold water associated with precipitation in the Susquehanna watershed coupled with the forecast of an extended cool weather period will keep water temperatures in an acceptable range for catch and release fishing for striped bass. Maryland anglers and visitors to the top of the bay will enjoy another week of catch and release fishing for stripers in the unique shallow water expanse that is the Susquehanna Flats.
