Morone saxatilis Spawning conditions Spawning migration distance Local fishermen catch adult striped bass more than 300 km upstream in the Savannah River from May to September and catch fish in the extreme dowstream tidal reaches of the river during the winter. The major spawning area for striped bass in the Savannah River is in the tidally influenced area 30 to 40 km upstream from the river mouth 300.0 km
Morone saxatilis Spawning conditions Spawning migration period Ascend rivers to spawn in fresh or brackosh water in March to June when water temperature reach 15 to 19°C ['March', 'April', 'May', 'June']
