Striped bass fishing class offered in Ulster

Striped bass are a favorite of local anglers, who can be seen each spring along the Hudson.

Learn the fundamentals of striped bass fishing from an experienced professional during the Beginner Striper Fishing course being offered by the Ulster BOCES Adult Career Education Center later this month.

The family-friendly course will cover basics such as equipment (rods and reels), baiting and casting techniques and how water and weather conditions can affect your success.
