Huge amount of bait(herring) continues to dump out of the creeks into the main river. Stripers are roaming the channel feeding aggressively - shallow at dawn & dusk, deeper when the sun is high. Look for bait & fish from Gunpowder Crk. south to Oxford Dam. Live herring work best but trolled artificials are also effective. Always have a 'throwing rod' ready to cast to surface feeding fish. 3/8-1/2 oz. bucktails, redfins, jigs with plastic bodies(paddlle tails, curly tails, or flukes) allwork well.
