STRIPED BASS: NEW YORK: Montauk boats are picking up stripers to 30 pounds on south shore but fish are still too far out for surfcasters, OG and improving through Nov. 15.
CALIFORNIA: Best October fishing in several years reported at San Pablo and Suisun bays and Carquinez Straits with bass small but abundant. Sacramento River picking up and Delta fishing prospects good for next 10 days.
MASSACHUSETTS: 55-pound nine-ounce striped bass caught by Wallace Pinkham of Vineyard Haven from beach at West Tisbury ( Martha's Vineyard) last week. Waters around Vineyard and Nantucket are still fairly warm and mild weather may keep bait and bass hanging around into November.
PACIFIC SALMON: BRITISH COLUMBIA: Cowichan Bay swarming with silvers and next two weeks should produce great fishing despite last week's heavy rain that drew some fish into the river. Heavy run of northern fish reported in Johnston Strait.
OREGON: Salmon fishing will remain crummy until rains raise coastal streams and bring runs into bays; OP until late in month.
