Re: harvesting trout ?

Funny you wrote this today, I was at the KLG yesterday and saw a family of 5 fishing about 1/2 mile from the opening (north side). They CLEARLY were keeping what they caught, IF I spoke Spanish I would have said something. Then I took a step back and thought that maybe they needed the fish to eat. T...

Pequest River April 23

Took a trip to the Pequest yesterday and it was LOADED with people by the hatchery and south. Took a ride down to Buttsville and found guys drifting salmon eggs.

BFB - No kill Zone trip 11/20

Would love to give you guys a good report.......only thing I saw was a 6" dead trout and wanted to pull it from the river to look for the transmitter. Couldn't get to it enough and was not risking slipping into the cold water. Second, saw a sign that labeled the area a "No Black Bear Hunting Area" w...

Re: Late spring - summer fly fishing

Thanks guys, I am a former BASS tournament guy who gets the stressed out fish game. Will be cognizant of that and practice, practice and practice more on the panfish to get my casting down. Can wait for the fall to go back to trout.
