Way North Chesapeake Fishing Report, December 4 Update:

Anglers can still get stripers slinging jigs in the dam pool, but most are throwbacks. Somehow the heavy rains mostly missed northern and western areas so while flow levels have come closer to normal, they’re still on the low side. Out on the flats as temps have been dropping the fish have been steadily shifting to the channels and deeper areas. Many anglers have been running south to troll the waters of the Upper Bay, but this week we did get a photo confirmed reader report of a nice rock coming from the North East, as well. We didn’t get any solid reports on cats this week but there’s no reason to believe there shouldn’t still be nonstop action in the rivers and especially within view of the Route 95 bridge. Note: Herb’s Tackle has cut back to Saturday-only hours, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., for the winter.
