Conroe stripers

Has anyone caught any stripers on Conroe in the last year or so and I am not talking about hybrids. I spoke with a guide on Conroe this morning and he said there are a lot of stripers that naturally spawned on Conroe. I did not believe this and still don't Can someone correct me ? Usually when there are stripers in Conroe I will catch some during the spring spawn and I have not caught one in several years.

Thanks
Matt

Not sure what the guide is talking about. I never see or heard anyone catching striper on Conroe. I am friend with some guide on Conroe and they never once caught a striper on Conroe either.

Did the TP&WD ever stock true stripers there? I thought Conroe just had hybrids stocked.


Well, just looked it up. From what I saw, TP&WD did stock some stripers there in 1994.

Conroe Stripers

Here is a pic of a 31 and 30" Stripers from Conroe back in '97. They all died off that September when the lake turned over. There were literally thousands of Stripers floating dead that year. GW told us that when the lake turned over, They did't come up from the depths and died of Oxygen deprivation. That was the end of Striper stocking in Conroe. I was told the lake record was 18lbs at the time so I never weighed them. Found out years later the record was 28.5" and 12.11 lbs. Story of my life lol

I was kayaking last Feb2018 about 100' south of Stubblefield Rd bridge and caught one. I am 100% sure it was one because I did the rearch on it. i am on the same page about none there. Stripes, tooth patch and all.
Not the best pic, but didnt think about it at the time.

Conroe stripers

I’m betting there are none left that are pure striped bass. Hybrids can look just almost like a striper, or like a white bass that hit super sized.
The iced down one looks like a hybrid, the striper looking kind, to me.


Those in the pictures from 97 are real pigs! Those were probably 3.5 to 4.5 year old fish.

I was just curious. Yes some of the hybrids will look similar to stripers. I also think the one in the picture could be a hybrid. Have caught a lot of hybrids near the are of Stubblefield where this fish was caught. This guide also told a person there that ALL crappie go back to where they came from to spawn. ALL !! That must be why I saw the fish truck headed BACK to the fish hatchery loaded. I do agree that most fish try to get back to where they were spawned.

Could be a lost Striper in the lake but doubt it. They are all Stripers by the limits so who cares. I do not think the Hybrids from Conroe or Livingston tastes as good as a Striper from Livingston. Whats your take on that?
