    Default Clinch stripers

    Was wondering how far up do the stripers travel up stream. I fished Miller's Monday and saw a couple filleted out at the boat ramp. I know someone could have boated down then came back up but figured Peach Orchard would be better suited for that.

    I've seen them trapped in pools and runs below the weir with the water down. I hope they're all filleted. I'll come help clean up the scraps.

    Peach orchard is a great place to catch em from what I hear but I'd say with enough current they can go all the way up

    I see them quite often in the summer right below the weir dam on one generator. Note; they get very fired up during the generation transition from no to one generator. There is about an hour window where they are super aggressive and active. I tend to see groups of 3-4 smaller striper in the pool above Miller's Island during no generation. They are very active right now along with the carp schools.

    They are super thick at Coal Creek and Peach Orchard as well.

    Hate to see that. Little striper become big striper. Thanks for the input.
