Thank the Lord, Spring is here!  Easter is gone and Mother’s Day is fast approaching.   The dogwoods are in full bloom and the Forsythias are dropping theirs.  The water temps have skyrocketed into the fifties and Ospreys have set up shop on their marshy perches.  These are the signs we look for this time of year to tell us that the Stripers are making their way up beautiful Narragansett Bay.    Oh and guess what…  They’re here!  The upper bay is full of fat, healthy, fresh  bass in the 20″ to 30″ range with some 35″ being caught as well.  The bay is stuffed with hearing, bunker, squid, and spawning Mantis Shrimp.  The fish are aggressively blasting small topwater plugs, small soft plastics, shrimp and squid flies. The next 3 weeks should be something special.  It will only get better as the water gets a little warmer and the bait continues to funnel in.  I am so looking forward to a stellar spring run before I relocate Snowfly Charters out to Block Island come mid June.   Until next time. Screaming reels and roaring tides. Capt. Greg Snow
