Anadromous Fish Caught on the SB
Posted on Jan 16th, 2017

FOR Director Brett McManus recently caught this striped bass off his dock located between the Churchill Bridge and the FM 521 Bridge.
 
Texas Parks and Wildlife says a striped bass spends most of its life in the sea but can live in both freshwater and saltwater and migrates from salt water to spawn in fresh water –– making it an anadromous fish (also an amorous one). In coastal populations, striped bass may ascend streams and travel as much as 100 miles inland to spawn. It’s a good thing the San Bernard is 120 miles long!
