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.

Re: Raritan/Passaic headwater Brown trout

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.

Re: Fall Trout

Great fish! Some of the rainbows don't look like recent stockers and the brown must be wild. What did you get them on?

Re: Not fall stocked:

It would take a pretty big striper to take down a 18-20 inch rainbow. An 8" stocker on the other hand..

Re: anyone getting out?

Seems like you guys are getting good rain with water temps that are fishable-anyone getting out? Flow must be pretty good for small stream fishing! Are fish starting to move towards spawning areas?
