Striper (Striped Bass or Rockfish) fishing season is April and May as the fish return to spawn in the fresh waters of the Roanoke River. The Roanoke has an excellent fish run during this time allowing anglers to catch large Striper up to 2 – 3 feet long and 15 – 20 pounds. The beautiful natural scenery along the Roanoke River basin is filled with great fishing, abundant wildlife and majestic views. It makes for a perfect family fishing trip.

Striper are highly sought after by sport fisherman around the country. We are very fortunate to have a stable fishery population that produces great catches for our recreational fishermen. Besides being fun and easy to catch, Striped Bass taste good too. They have a large flake white meat with a mild flavor and medium texture. Striper can be fried, grilled, broiled, or pan-seared.
