No, but they don't want you to eat them right now out of that lake. Same for Spruce Run.
Like I would eat anything out of either one of those "ponds".. ;)

Re: Traveling with Fly Fishing Gear

I carry my rods, reels get checked in my suitcase and packed between clothing..DO NOT carry a vise on with you as it will be seized and thrown out.I watched it happen to a good friend. It was just the head too, not the base. The only thing I have ever had broken was a net that was in my suitcase...p...

I hope folks realize the TCA regs and are keeping the fish (one 15 inch fish in the TCA) for a 4th of Ju...

Re: HEAT

The KLG last Monday was 67.3 at 2 PM, I can't imagine it is cool enough right now, the rain may cool it a bit, but it has been warm at night now, which doesn't allow for overnight cooling...just throwing that out there, if you go, good luck with the heat and the fish...

Re: Thieves in KLG

Trust people...NEVER!!!! Especially a place like the KLG, all sorts go down there. My favorites are the people who put dog shit in plastic bags and leave it there. FFS, if you are gonna leave it, don't bag it...and leash your animals, just like your gear, leash it to yourself...

Re: NJ Stockies

With streamers I like to run the hook through the sharpener 4 or 5 times before I start fishing a new fly. Then again later if I'm nicking the bottom periodically.

Thanks. Just read your post. Sorry I didn't see it earlier. Could have used it yesterday. There were 2 guys spin fishing in the South Branch at the Arches in High Bridge yesterday, one above and one below, at about 2:30 yesterday. Hope the authorities saw them too. Maybe that area needs to be poste...

I called the number on the signs in the KLG once as a couple of dicks were worm dunking after a storm...the lady who answered the phone sounded lost until I explained for a 3rd time, this is the number on the sign...she got it then, asked me my phone number, and to wait for a call back.

Re: List fishing licenses

Call all local fly shops. Shannon's has reams of fishing licenses dropped off after being found by others, but few ever stop in the claim them. For NJ, it will cost you $2 to get a duplicate. it's free https://www.njfishandwildlife.com/duplic.htm Only if you buy online. I don't because I save a few...
