Re: South Branch Advise

NOW is the time to drive around, do your scouting, look into permits for launching etc. You can launch at Boyd Park, Donaldson Park, Edison Boat Basin launch and Sayerville. Don't forget about the South River also. We catch these in Bound Brook in the spring on the Raritan river.

Trout are easy, it's all about cuts and seams.

It's only a half hour drive to the KLG from the Green Brook, think about that.

We used to get lots of these all over the Raritan river, then they stopped stocking Brook Trout and it all went away.

How many anglers will be heading to Ponderlodge pond in Cape May or Birch Grove Park pond near Atlantic City this winter to catch stocked trout ?
