Re: Backing

Pike won't take you into the backing, no need to purchase high end, basically a spool filler. I use the least expensive Cabelas brand.

Re: Nice wild brown...

Nice catch for Jersey waters, well done. I'm staying off the WTS's until mid-Nov. Let the fish do their thing in peace. I'd be more worried about herons & mergansers making easy pickings of trout in shallow water than anglers fishing. One flock of 6-10 mergansers can kill more fish in a day than an...

Re: India Brook mischeif

Curious as I fish that stream occasionally and don't recall ever seeing the old bridge abutments. Where is this in relation to the falls.

Stream Assessments

Anyone know how often the state assesses/surveys, and publishes findings on the health of wild trout streams? I believe the last one was in 2015?

Re: Ok it's cool enough , we can officially talk about trout again

Caught some wild browns and rainbows last weekend on top, early morning outing wanted to be sure water temps were low. Hoping to get back up to the Catskills in a few weeks.

I'm running up to the West Branch tomorrow for some tailwater dry fly fishing.
Best of luck to you. I hope your new PB rises to the occasion.

Re: Musky morning

I fished it also this morning. Water was flowing and yes, off colored. I landed and released four on an a bugger, missed a few others, nothing like yours though. Perhaps stocked by a club?
