My brother and I fished Acadia in August about 15 years ago. We didn't really have a plan, but stopped at several likely looking brooks and found lots of willing but small trout. I am told you can find sea run brookies in the fall as well-we were fishing very close the ocean. We tried several ponds,...

Re: First trifecta of my life

There is not much you can't catch with a Mepps spinner! Especially effective in slightly high/off color water.

Re: Spruce Run Creek

Fished it last fall from reservoir upstream to the powerlines...nada...not even a follow. However way, way upstream in the headwaters on some cty land caught a few wild browns. Was it on a day with good conditions? Could it have been spawning time and fish were elsewhere? Sometimes streams like tha...

That's sad-10 years ago, you could always find wild browns, some up to 18-20 inches as well as a smattering of holdover bo...

Re: Raritan river 3/9/19:

I caught a few nice brook trout on the fly several years ago in that lake, but you need to watch your back cast with all the people on the jogging path-The best spot was in a little channel by the island.

Re: Raritan river 3/9/19:

Well I live in Hoboken.
It's not a river, but you can catch trout up at that lake in West New York by 85th street. Also, you can get some decent stripers in April/May off the Hoboken pier, not to mention some interesting conversations with the motley crew of fisherman there.

Farm raised trout is really cheap here in Kosovo. My wife once had a work trip to the Albanian mountains near the Kosovo border and...

Re: Round Valley Trout Association meeting 2/21/19:

How are the land locked doing in the other NJ water ways? Are they able to breed in lakes, or do they need streams to run up?

Re: Rhinehart Brook brown trout removal...

Rusty, do you know what other streams they are going to try the brookie restoration on? As of this summer when I reached out, it was not yet certain.

Nice work! Did you run into many wild bows in the Passaic headwaters? I last fished that area in 2014 and I only caught wild bows.

Re: Big Flatbrook 11/1

All this rain has enabled the stockies to spread out far from their stocking points.
