Striped bass have a preferred temperature range of from 55° F to 68° F.
To stay within this temperature range, most striped bass migrate.
The spring striper migration begins from wintering quarters in the deeper waters off of the Virginia and North Carolina coasts. In the spring stripers head north and as the water warms, they migrate further north seeking cooler water. They end up throughout New England waters, and even further north.
In the fall, as the water cools, the stripers head south again. Most of the migrating stripers end up back down in the deeper waters off of the VA and NC coasts, where they spend the winter.
