Southeast Pennsylvania Fishing Report – March 13th, 2015
Delaware River and estuary — The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission implemented changes to striped bass fishing regulations on the Pennsylvania side of the river and estuary March 1 to comply with requirements of the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. The daily creel limit in the estuary was reduced from two to one fish, at least 28 inches, from Jan. 1 through March 31 and from June 1 through Dec. 31. At all other times, the slot length limit was tightened to 21-25 inches from 20-26 inches, and the creel limit remains at two fish per day. In the river, the daily creel limit for striped bass was reduced from two fish to one, and the water is open year-round with a minimum size of 28 inches.
