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.

Re: Public Meeting on Trout Stocking Program February 29

If I remember correctly the State stocked some fingerling rainbows in the lower end of Hockhocson Brook in an effort to create a steelhead run in the Navesink River, and as far as I know it met the same fate as the Toms and Manasquan experiments.

Re: Public Meeting on Trout Stocking Program February 29

About 10 years ago the State stocked 10's of thousands of fingerling brookies at several bridges below the Toms River TCA and continued to do so for several years. Within a weeks time some of those fish made their up to the TCA and were caught for a couple of weeks and pretty much disappeared and th...
