Guides icing up

Looking at the weather forecast, it looks like we will have some days where we'll be fighting ice build up in our line guides. So far this winter it has not been a problem for me but I do try to go out on the warmer days. I post this just as a reminder to everyone that just like your rod's guides, a...

Re: South Branch Advise

"funny looking orange fish" That fish was a Palomino aka; Golden Trout. If you look at Shannon's web site video on the Bubba stocking, you see that they are putting in a few. They don't breed. Finicky so I don't target them however fish right around them because there is usually a rainbow or brown h...

Re: South Branch Advise

You can pretty much fish from the KLG upstream along River Road to Califon. There are some public pull off spots. At Califon, take Bank Street in Califon which runs along the ball fields and becomes Vernoy Road. There are plenty of spots there. Above the Vernoy Bridge there are posted areas although...

Re: Rhinehart Brook brown trout removal...

There is a natural barrier to brown trout migration into the Rhinehart area they are talking about. If I remember correctly there is a falls which was going to be further increased as a barrier by making the area just below more shallow so any fish trying to go upstream could not gain speed in order...

Guys beg for rain to have high flows. Well here it is. Deal with it Lighten up. It was meant as humor other than my struggles with typing which were unintended humor.

Re: Winter trout stocking:

You're talking 160 and 190 trout out of 600,000 stocked this year. Yes they will probably die next summer if not caught but the trout hatchery program has to serve the ENTIRE state not just the northern part. I'm sure they sell enough licenses and trout stamps in Atlantic and Cape May counties to co...

Re: Fly fishing etiquette rant

Every time I fish a certain stretch of the Willowemoc I have the same problem. I usually get there early as there is a consistent take of BWO in the morning and work my way up a run. Invariably somebody will show up and stand in the run which is knee deep and on the edge of the river and cast to the...

If flows remain high, think flashy especially with dumb stockies, rainbow warrior, Frenchie or anything with a hot spot in addition to those already mentioned.

Re: Columbia Dam removal

Rusty could answer the question of sediment removal far better than I can but from hearing him talk multiple times I can say this. On another possible future removal, where the dam is of significant height(33feet) and the impoundment is all silted in to the depth of a few feet, he talked about remov...

Re: Columbia Dam removal

There are dams where the water is deep and the released water is from the depths and is cold. A good example is the upper West Branch of the Delaware below the Cannonsville dam above Deposit NY where the water stays in the 50's. The dams that are removed by TU and other conservation groups are not l...

Re: Long Beach Island With The Flyrod?

I've seen people fly fishing off the south jetty in Barnegat Light. You need a south or better southwesterly wind for optimal conditions and don't even think about it with a wind coming out of the north as you will be eating your fly. Be careful on the rocks. Korkers would be a plus. Outgoing tide i...
