Saw LBS and Beatis on the Musky yesterday. The warm temps got them popping for a few days anyway.
Fishing or surveying? Haven't been to Musky or any of the "larger" NJ streams since the rains blew them out. If fishing any luck?

I was on a small WTS stream Sunday. Saw midges and nothing else in the air.

Re: Next on your purchase list

Most likely waders. My current set is still fine, but not sure will last the season. I do need a packable lightweight wading jacket. I like the one offered by LLBean but they don't have my size in stock anywhere. I have time, if it doesn't come into stock i'll probably get the Simms or Patagonia. Wh...

Re: Edison Fly Fishing Show this weekend

The show blew its chance to fix the first year's layout which EVERYONE complained about last year (and now again this year). The stupid casting pond needs to be jammed up against the wall and out in the middle of the flow of foot traffic. Just like it was in Somerset They set everything up the exac...

Re: Edison Fly Fishing Show this weekend

I was there Friday as the doors opened, hate the weekend crowd. Always a good show, lots to see and buy, which I did (buy) little of, only stocking up on the few essentials. I primarily use Tenkara gear so there is little I need, and I did adopt the minimalist approach of Tenkara. That being said I ...

Re: BFB - No kill Zone trip 11/20

Cappy - Cant say for sure it was.. If it was only 6", it was a wild brookie or brown. State doesn't stock anywhere near that small a size of rainbow. Unless it was one of the hatchery's famous "sunbows" :lol: By that, I mean some of the genetic mutants that survive to be stocked that look more like...

Re: BFB - No kill Zone trip 11/20

Would love to give you guys a good report.......only thing I saw was a 6" dead trout and wanted to pull it from the river to look for the transmitter. Couldn't get to it enough and was not risking slipping into the cold water. Second, saw a sign that labeled the area a "No Black Bear Hunting Area" ...

Re: Big Flatbrook 11/1

I don't mind the no-kill part as I don't keep anything, that is good idea or possibly limit the take to two fish, but it was much better as a fly-fishing only stretch. I personally saw less fisherman, gets hammered early season by spin fisherman and I doubt they are all following the new hook restri...

When worm containers and power bait jars abound in the new regulation stretch YOU DO THE MATH. It was much better as fly only the new regulation is a MAJOR MISTAKE...Hate all YOU WANT

Nice fish thanks for the pics. Upstate NY?

I hit a local WTS, caught two browns; nothing close to that size...LOL
Nope, these are Jersey trout! I'm guessing the browns were from a private club stocking that made their way into public water.
See it now, yep private club.
