Re: Water Temps

At least where I live, next week's temps look like they're inching back up into the 87-88 range during the day. But some of these cool mornings with low dew points (50s) have been delightful. I also looked at NJ's drought map which says the state is in a green "normal' range. Do normal water levels...

Re: Raritan river- rough week ! 6/30/20:

Given the current climate towards law enforcement I'm not doubting that officers are more than hesitant to get into any sort of disagreement with partying drunkards. Those situations can go south quickly and at this point will always reflect bad on the officers even if they are doing the right thing...

Re: Cut-off temp for summer trout?

Welcome to the forum. 68F is the most accepted temperature to stop fishing at because once the temps starting climbing and hit 68, 70 isnt far behind. The weather for the next 10 days is not looking good for trout. nope. i wonder if these downpours and scattered storms are helping too. I imagine th...

That could be cheap if the sediment turns out to have "nasty" stuff in it.

Try PAFLYFISH, they have a fair amount of Maryland members on that board. They discuss the Gunpowder from time to time.

Re: A new honey hole for me on the Musky

Where was the smallie float?? Sometimes I angle for them on the east branch of the delaware if the flows are to high on the west branch. definitely strong pulling fish for sure. I usually go for them @ split rock if I stay local for them. I have caught some nice 20" inchers in there. I had a few th...

Always did well in that stretch along the road. Also got my biggest Musky smallie right around that bend.

Re: Pequannock river

Probably heading there Thursday evening, will report back results. Didn't get there cause of water temp concerns, fished the cold water outflow at Pequest TCA instead. Had it all to myself :D, except the water was the color of yoohoo from the afternoon storms. Managed 1 on a black streamer. :D Bett...

Re: Pequannock river

I've noticed up ticks in fish numbers on two other wild brown streams I fish, size isn't there yet but like RS said that will come if we have another favorable water year or 2. Last time I fished the Pequannock about mid-May I moved a few wild browns in the 8-9 inch range as well. Probably heading t...

Re: Barbless Regulations and Their Pointlessness

Lies, damn lies, and statistics. You can make numbers say what you want them to say. I have 40 years of experience going back to when I (gasp.....) fished BAIT! Here goes: 1) I lost plenty of fish during the fight when I used barbed bait hooks and barbed flies. 2) IMHO it takes more force on a hooks...

Re: 15" wild brown

Usually the answer is because that stream or river doesn't produce nearly enough wild trout to stop stocking it. Right now, all eyes should be on the upper 9 miles of the SBR which has gone unstocked for several years now. I live here and have watched the number of anglers slowly dwindle each year ...

WTF is windmill cancer? I have it on good authority, "the best authority, everyone says so", that windmill noise causes cancer. It is not Ancraophobia, also known as anemophobia, but rather my fondness of windmills that exposed me to its cancerous affects. Everyone eventually gets cancer if you liv...
