Hudson River Fishing Charters

The Hudson is a 325 mile tidal river that runs through the eastern portion of New York State, the tide can rise and fall as much as five feet, thanks to effective management, populations of striped bass, also known as rock fish, are on the rebound, drawing thousands of anglers to the Hudson each spring.

With over 30 years fishing experience on the River, let us share with you more about where, when, and how…


Stripers enter the Hudson River in late March and early April and can remain until sometime in June, they follow and feed on river herring as they migrate up the river to spawn.

I feel that the fish will always be near deep water, as the season progresses they will frequent the shallows more often, but they will always be relatively close to a quick sprint to the depths.

The Hot Spots…

The section of River that we will concentrate on is from the ledges in Malden area to the esopus flats, Sailing daily from Jeff’s Yacht Haven in Connelly New York will give us the distinct advantage of being right in the middle of these prime locations, with a short run to the fish, this area is a breeding ground for the very big females, better known as cows, very scenic with breathtaking views.

With numerous tournament wins Captain Steve has proven the fish will navigate certain routes year after year, the larger spawning females will follow the main river channel to seek out and use the numerous flats, shoals, and ledges to ambush and gorge on the river herring.

Over the last decade it has been well documented that the areas we will be targeting have produced most of the records, hailed as a sign that the biggest stripers will return to their favorite haunts for many generations to come.

Striped bass is a highly prized species, many recreational fishermen consider it to be one of the most exciting and challenging fish to catch.
