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

I mean who drags a gas grill down to the river ! Not condoning the garbage but a gas grill makes that party that much sweeter!!!.....like I said before , garbage is the only problem I see....if the folks involved were capable of leaving it the way they found it, than I would be willing to bet that ...

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...

Re: A new honey hole for me on the Musky

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 ...

Re: State parks to open 5/2/20

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...

Re: Pequest River April 23

Pequest is usually loaded with people in a normal year, can't imagine now with people having nothing else to do.

With that much pressure the fishing can be tough to dial in. I've had luck using flies that are different than what the fish regularly see.

Re: SBR on Shannons stretch

Both the KLG and the parts from Hoffman up are beautiful stretches, however, I agree with everyone else about how busy it gets. I'll still fish them a couple times a year, but generally avoid them. The KLG gets quickly unbearable with the amount of people that show up there. I have not fished the g...
