I fish up in Morrisville every year right across from Trenton by the train bridge I went out Sunday morning around 7 and fished the outgoing tide. I did not hook into anything and didn't see anyone catch anything either but there were a lot of people fishing the area and a decent amount of boats. I talked to a couple people only one guy said he caught some up this way but I'm sure they are here like I said I fish here every year and I've always caught them by now. I'm going out again this weekend if I get into anything I will let you know. Can you not fish the BBB anymore?

I fish up here in Morrisville right across from Trenton every weekend I haven't got into any fish yet but the tides have not worked in favor either hopefully soon I usually have at least 1 or 2 by this time. To anyone wanting to know what's going on up here in Trenton more and more people are fishing up here I was out Sat and Sun seen a decent amount of boats and people so I'm assuming this fish are here I personally have not go one though. I talked to a few guys most have had the same luck as me and a few are saying they are catching them so their is your Trenton report for now. If anyone has anymore info for up this way or knows where they are biting please let me know Good Luck to All!!!

my son's friend has hooked into some keepers the last two days down by linden ave so they're getting up here. i have to head up morrisville to try things out until i get on the boat. maybe tonight.

my son said he was told someone bought out the area around the BBB and it's no tresspassing now. sucks cause i've had good luck there.

Hey there, Fished in Morrisville last night. Didn't see anyone hook up to anything but some guys showed me a picture taken about 20 min earlier with the guy holding a 30-31 inch fish! **edited**

Unfortunately we didn't hook into anything but we will be out there Friday hopefully!! Haven't caught a striper in my life so hopefully this year will be the one to break that bad streak!!

Good luck!

Probably would be a good idea. Nobody by the bridges (from shore at least) was catching anything. Only guys out on the boats and kayaks.

Also if your up at Morrisville you have to fish the incoming and high tide if your fishing from the bank because the channel is over by the jersey side and it get extremely shallow on PA side at low tide you can almost walk out to the middle of the river. If your up there most of the boats are over towards the jersey side cause of the channel but I've done really well from the bank on PA side fishing the incoming and high tide

i usually take two rods. one rigged for bait one rigged for lures. i've actually done real good on blood worms but never any keepers. only keeper i got out of the river was caught on a jointed rapala just above the TMB on the jersey side.

I try everything I can I'm always changing baits trying to find what they want all the ones I caught were on Bloodworms from the shore anyway I've caught them on lures out on a boat but never from the shore but I know guys catch them on lures from the shore but Bloodworms and fresh Clam is the best bait I've used so far
