Re: NJTU State Council March Flytying Madness Mar 7 @ Cranford community center

The turn out was pretty good , even with the covid19 stuff going on , we had over 50 fly tiers on hand . All the tiers were very generous so it turned out well . I'm partial to the event so I think it's great , I'd love to hear some one else's feed back . Feel free to pm me if you attended .

Re: Public Meeting on Trout Stocking Program February 29

I think it's safe to say trout migrate into tribs from the Delaware , and not just the tail water part . I don't fish the muskie but if the lower river is as cold as everyone says I'm sure it's a thermal refuge for trout in that area . Maybe not big numbers but in sure there are probably a few .

Re: Public Meeting on Trout Stocking Program February 29

I believe the little juniata in pa has wild browns as a result of the fingerling stockings. not sure if something similar could be done on the ...
