2011 Striped Bass Spawning Stock Assessment in the tidal Delaware River

The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission sampled striped bass at 21 index sites ranging from the mouth of Rancocas Creek, NJ (near river mile 109) downriver to the mouth of Raccoon Creek, NJ (near river mile 80).

336 striped bass were collected with males comprising over 70% of the catch.  In 2011, the averages for the total catch were similar to the long-term averages observed from 1996 to 2010.

Since 1995, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission tagged a total of 3,349 striped bass in the Delaware River and tidal Schuylkill River.  19% of the tags have been returned providing migration, mortality and growth data.  Tags returns have been reported from anglers fishing waters ranging from North Carolina to Massachusetts with the greatesr tag returns coming from New Jersey.
