Striped bass are moving into the Chesapeake Bay and into the bay's spawning tidal rivers. These include the Potomac, Patuxent, Nanticoke, Choptank and Susquehanna Rivers. Despite the unusually warm weather in February, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources says everything looks on track for a normal mid-April spawn.
