Nothing in March

I've given the Providence River a lot of looks in March while fishing for wintering over stripers. I fished cold nights, daytime, and warm and rainy nights. I tried up in the city, down by the barrier and along the Point St. Bridge, all hotspots in the past. In all instances the results were the same....nothing. I haven't had a hit and have rarely seen another fisherman which tells me no one is catching. Contrary to some fishing reports you might be reading in a certain magazine, there have been no fish in this place. If this trend continues, it will be the first March I have been blanked in over 15 years. It won't be for lack of trying.
