Winter Striper Trips

These cold water fish are remarkably easy targets to catch this time of year. Stripers enter into our tributaries and winter up in large numbers, 100 fish per day catches are not uncommon. Our light tackle, cold water charters will be some of your most memorable fishing trips. For optimal success CWW winter striper trips run between the end of November thru February. Don’t sit in your house another minute, you are missing out on a great fully outfitted fishing trip.

Spring Stripers Trips

Spring Striper on the Roanoke River start migrating from their winter holes, upriver towards Weldon to spawn, this migration starts in the month of March until the majority of the river run stripers have reached their destination in Weldon, NC at the end of April thru May. During this migration of stripers the lower Roanoke and its creeks are on fire with numbers of feeding fish chasing the herring that migrate and spawn in our extensive fishery. During these times CWW clients catch large numbers of Stripers on artificial plastics and top water lures. Casting a top water plug into a feeding frenzy of Stripers will get adrenalin running.
