Freshwater stripers


I'm looking for a striper. I'll probably try the umpqua, maybe Smith.
When are they in the rivers? I heard they need the flowing water for their eggs, but i can't find when their spawning season is. Are they only in fresh water for a couple months? Or perhaps longer, maybe even year round?
Appreciate the help~

Stripers in the Smith?
That's close enough to run through the forest and drop a sardine.
Anyone care to offer a good access spot to bait fish them along Lower Smith River Road?
I'm disabled and can't walk/climb well with rugged shore line.
Boat launch ramps work well for me but I don't know of any on the Smith.
