They're Back

It's been a tough couple of weeks in the Providence River with a fish or two here and there along with lots of dry runs. But, that all ended yesterday as the fishing lit up, once again. Mix a lot of rain, a big high tide at night, and a strong northwest wind and you've got the recipe for hot holdover striper fishing in the Providence River. Landed over 30 fish the last two evenings/nights at the river fishing a Zoom fluke in a smokey shad color on a quarter ounce head. The fish were all sizes from 12 inch dinks up to 28 inch keepers (see photo of keeper on right). There's a ton of fishermen out there just waiting for the first striper to be caught off the West Wall in mid April. Why wait, catch the action in Providence right now!
