OK, so three of those crazy storms, many of them stalling out on the Kerr Lake watershed has resulted in a deluge of water that has got to come through those dams. Water levels have been ideal for the last week, both for catching stripers and for the conditions they need to spawn.
The water is going back up in the bushes and that may not be good at all for spawning conditions, but for catching stripers, that's going to work out just fine. We were catching 'em a week ago when the water was just as high and we'll be catching again this week after the water levels stabilize. The only difference is that they are going to be a lot bigger and there are going to be a lot more of them.
