Re: Questions about Wild Brookie Streams (Dunnfield, Trout Brook, etc.)

I like searching on google maps then cross checking the area using this link http://www.protectedlands.net/map/ to see whether theres public access or not, I dont want trouble entering someone else's property.

Re: Lake Waywayanda Ice Out?

Went yesterday evening after work, a little breezy at first, fished by the boat launch and then the beach area (no boat) a few people were out on the lake shore w/ one in a canoe, no action for anyone but after 5:30 they're were plenty of risers. Lots of gnats, the most annoying ones to, eyes and ea...

Re: Shad season

Things are looking good here, I stopped at a small tackle shop near me just to see what they had, and older guy was working and asked if I needed help, told him I was looking for some shad lures and spoons, his face lit up and he said not to many people ask about those but he has a special area that...

Re: Shad season

I ordered both shad darts and shad spoons from Dicks sporting goods-check your local tackle shop and if you dont find them order from Dicks. If you can’t find them small cast master spoons in combo with 1/16 oz chartreuse grub jigs also will get you fish. The key is being able to cast far, sink, an...

Re: Shad season

Hearing reports of shad starting to run up the southern Delaware River, a couple reports out of Burlington Co so its only a matter of time for Trenton and points north. I've never really gone shad fishing, but this year I'm going to give it a shot near the water gap area and just from the shore (poo...

Re: State parks to open 5/2/20

Friday evening I decided to take a ride to my local creek (which was closed since its within the state park system) I just wanted to see what the water was doing, how high it was from the rain and whether it was cloudy / murky (since its a mud bottom in spots) Well upon arriving there was a truck pa...

Re: India Brook mischeif

Looks like the creek was semi restored in his illegal work area, the pipe might be approved since the inlet is above the stream current, so he'll only get water when there a surplus of water, but who knows unless its actually inspected. Glad to see that when people see something that might be wrong,...

Re: harvesting trout ?

I was at my local food store yesterday and saw no sign of any meat shortages, prices were up a few dollars on chicken and beef, but nothing crazy, no empty shelves either, or panic buying. Best bet is to find your local farm and ask them of they hold sales for meats. I have 4 farms within a 5 min dr...

State parks to open 5/2/20

According to some news articles I've read this morning, the state of NJ is set to allow state parks to reopen this Saturday. That's great news for people in my area that have had some major fishing restrictions placed on them by the default closure of state facilities and land access. Of course soci...
