Re: Coorelation of temps and bite in winter

I went fishing out on Sunday when it was 37 degrees, cloudy, and very windy. I did not get a single bite the entire day.

I definitely agree with you coaltrout; I see much more success with temps around >40 and sunshine

Re: Who Uses a Net?

I always use a net. I find it is easier to safely remove the hook without harming the fish. It also allows me to keep the fish in the water while I take my phone out so I can take a quick picture (which I'd say I do about 90% of the time just for fun).

50 Degrees Saturday

Weather was 50 degrees and rainy on Saturday so I decided to go out in the afternoon for a few hours before dark. First hook up of the day was this rainbow, and was one of the bigger rainbows I have ever caught in NJ. He was about the size of my net (which I meant to measure and completely forgot). ...

Nice pics. Heading up this weekend.
Good luck! The steelhead seemed to want natural colors this year. I was catching them on a 10 mm orange egg bead. Tight Lines!!!

Salmon River: 10/30-11/3

Went up to the Salmon River last week for our annual fishing trip. Wednesday and Thursday were slow, but solid fishing. I managed to land about 12 steelhead between the 2 days. One of which included my personal best, 17 lb steelhead. A lot of browns are in the river. All caught on an orange salmon e...

Re: Flyfishing Catskills

I used to fish Charlotte Creek in the 1970s. Just about any fly worked so well that I had to relearn fishing if I went elsewhere. I kept count once, 20 brookies in an hour while standing in the same spot. Has it changed? Thanks for all responses guys. I appreciate the help. And Pete, that's great t...

Flyfishing Catskills

I have recently started fly fishing in NJ only about 2 years ago so I am still pretty new to the sport (new to GST as well). I consider myself successful fishing in NJ for stockies, but when I head upstate NY (my family has property in the Oneonta area in Davenport) I struggle to catch fish. The mai...
