Re: Winter Stockings

The KLG was stocked in the Fall. I was there a few days after the stocking, the water was extremely low and it was pretty obvious that there were new fish in the river.

Re: Gearing Up for Fishing

I have 3 fly rods and neither of them have been taken apart for at least 10 years. Some may frown on this but it works for me and I haven’t had any problems.

Re: "Free-riders"

Those of us that are 70+ don’t need a license just a form of ID that shows our date of birth. One of the few benefits that come with old age.

Re: Very large native brookies-video

Not the Toms - no boulders or rocks there. Otherwise there is some resemblance.

Re: SBR USGS gauge gets temp data

Re: Summer Trout

That’s why I use a 6 foot 3 weight with a 4 weight double taper line and seldom use anything but streamers there which can be worked under bushes and through the deep holes. It’s definitely not for everybody which is why you seldom see anyone else fishing there, not to mention the area is tick infes...

Re: Summer Trout

The State still stocks the Toms in fact the TCA receives about 1000 trout during a typical season. The Brookies held over well and provided good fishing year round. In 2007 we electrofished the TCA on Sept 5th, shortly before the Fall stocking. In the typical 100 yard stretch for electro fishing we ...

Re: Summer Trout

The Toms River stays cool year round. I have fished it for years and never seen the temperature above 68 degrees. Fished it about 10 days ago and temp was 64 degrees. That being said the fishing there hasn’t been the same since the State stopped stocking Brookies and browns. The rainbows don’t do we...

Re: Tippet Expiration Dates

I have never paid any attention to expiration dates and have never had a problem to the best of my knowledge. As far as I know most tippet manufacturers don’t even have expiration dates on their products.

Re: Changes to NJ trout season about to be announced

For some reason the info under What’s New on the FandW website was taken down. It said all State Parks are closed and listed the waters in those parks were closed to fishing and also indicated that all stocking for the season will be completed by 4/10.

Re: Changes to NJ trout season about to be announced

The beginning of this thread suggested that in season stocking would continue this year except that it will done randomly and stocking day closures will not be in effect. I’ve seen nothing to suggest that all stocking will be completed by April 17th or that the entire season allotments are currently...

Re: Changes to NJ trout season about to be announced

I plan to go out tomorrow and don’t want to explain to the law why I’m fishing where I am. April Fools Day also crossed my mind.
