Re: List fishing licenses

I always buy online and print 3-4 licenses in case I lose one or forget to bring one. Plus, I always save the email and license so I can reprint them.

don't sweat the temps wrap then in tinfoil with some butter, white wine salt pepper garlic. yummy
Stocked trout cooked that way taste of butter, wine, salt, pepper and garlic. The stocked trout, if you are lucky, does not add any flavor.

Re: Sink Tip Fly Line

Most NJ streams do not need a sink tip. The leader and tippet is usually long enough to reach the bottom without a sink tip. Plus a sink tip would mask any hits.

Now, in deep waters, a sink tip can be helpful to get that fly to the right depth.

Oh, and fishing sink tips is like cheating :D

So, when you guys catch the ice, do you keep it an put it in your freezer? :D :D :D ;)
Not me, I put the ice in a glass and pour alcohol over it to preserve it.

Re: South Branch Advise

Remember your 2019 fishing license. I saw three anglers at the gorge and each was displaying their 2018 license. I have no doubt they will soon get and display the current license. The water was high, moving fast and off color. I doubt they caught anything.

Re: Paulinskill river:

So it appears they haven't done any more work on the dam since early Oct. Columbia 1.JPG Columbia 3.JPG I would suspect permits are dictating what and when they are allowed to do things. Do something out of the timeframe the permits allows and they would get a warning from the State of NJ, DEP. It ...

Re: Fly fishing etiquette rant

As a follow up and perhaps a change of the discussion, this is why my wife and I have taken to fishing smaller waters, and taking longer hikes to the water. We also like to fish less popular water. We fished Granite creek one year (outside of Jackson) and caught our fill of large cutts. We saw one ...

Re: Idiot Governor Ignores Science, Bans Bear Hunting on State Land

Politicians ignoring science is not just limited to our current governor, nor is it isolated to bear hunting. There is a whole climate of topics that politicians are ignoring science while making policies and laws. And it is not just ignoring the science, some politicians embrace the ignorance and d...

Re: The KLG

I bet poor handling of fish and fishing during water temps over 70°f take just as big a toll on fish populations in the gorge than anything else . Walked through there July 3rd in the evening ,water was way to warm over 70°f . There's 5 guys fishing to risers . Sure we had a great water year but fo...

So I thought of this thread when I was out in the Big Flat Brook today and swear I saw a black colored eel slither away as I stepped upstream. Seems pretty far to go up the Delaware and then into the Flat Brook but I guess its possible? I was in the middle of the Flatbrook WMA and a little freaked ...

Re: anyone getting out?

I'm not sure which stream you are referencing but on the small wild trout streams I have been fishing I have noticed a lot of blue herons, more than in the past. Those guys must be affecting the trout populations. Too many angler “tweeting” favorite fishing locations! Don’t they know herons search ...
