The number of striped bass caught from Delaware River kept increasing through last week, a report said Thursday on Brinkman’s Bait & Tackle in Philadelphia’s website. A photo of a 31-incher was seen from near Tacony-Palmyra Bridge. Throwback-sized gave up lots of action near Commodore Barry Bridge. Some anglers eased in 40 in a trip. Stripers were still angled farther downstream at Salem that week. Striper fishing is closed on the river from Salem River to the Calhoun Street Bridge in Trenton from New Jersey this time of year. Anglers release them, and certain circle hooks are required by law to fish for stripers on the river from Jersey. Pennsylvania’s laws are different. Shad began to be fought from the river at Trenton. Photos of 3- to 7-pounders were seen. Reports were sporadic from farther upriver. Plenty were hooked on some days, and other days were a bust. Shad began to show up at Easton that week. Additional details and fishing was included in the report.
