Just purchased our new home on western branch of Elizabeth river. Do the striper come up in there to spawn,how about catfishing?

I have a friend who lives across from Portsmouth City park, (up a small stream) and he catches trout, striper and puppy drum off his dock. so the answer is yes you can. I have caught striper at sandy point. It is where a train track used to cross the river near the Hodges Ferry bridge.

Looking at Google earth,the house is sitting directly across from hodges ferry,3813 Bruce rd,chessapeake. I'm excited now that I hear a good report about the area. I'm wondering how shallow it gets at low tide in that area. If my boat will be sitting on the bottom or not. I can already see some "sick days from work coming!
