Re: South Branch Advise

Plenty of great water well below the KLG and Clinton. I don't for the life of me understand the hard one people have for KLG. It's pretty but not remote, its most often crowded, the fish are pounded into submission. There's more than a handful of jerks whether they are sporting fly tackle or spin g...

Re: Rhinehart Brook brown trout removal...

Completely agree with NJA. I love brookies but in NJ they are playing cards against a stacked deck favoring the house (pun intended). Browns are very worthy wild fish and probably should be left to their own devices in streams where they've come to supplant brookies. That strategy works well in PA a...

Re: Rhinehart Brook brown trout removal...

I know a formerly good brookie stream that could have used 1,000 wild browns. It's overrun with fall fish now and the brookies are gone.

Re: Big Flatbrook 11/1

Another special regs area that I stay out of.

BTW - I remember hearing the same poaching argument back when it was a fly only stretch too. Didn't fish it then either, too many snooty fly fishermen there then.

Re: Big Flatbrook 11/1

The BFB is by far the toughest of the NJ rivers to fish. I can seem absolutely dead. IMHO its not worth fishing unless you get there at sun up or sun down or when its raining. Any semblance of light and the fish get lock jaw. I get on the river by 6 am and am done before 9, otherwise its just castin...

Re: Raritan river 10/23/18:

Like I said, I have been told by the higher ups at New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife that trout CAN NOT and WILL NOT hold over in the Raritan river due to the high water temps. And that is true. There will be smaller tributaries the trout head into to escape the summer heat and every once in...

Re: Raritan river 10/23/18:

If those are not freshly stocked bows, how/where do they survive the summer heat? Funny thing those trout, they turn up in the darnedest of places. I've see trout caught in the Delaware well below what's thought to be the "trout water". Why would the Raritan be any different? I'd surmise that they ...

Re: Not fall stocked:

How's the smallmouth fishing through there? I come through that way once a week and am always looking to expand my angling horizons.

And yeah if they stock Saddle River they should throw some there too.

Re: Watch out for trout redds

The stockies will be going in this week here and PA, time to give the wild ones a break and let them get on with getting it on! Be a sport and don't target trout on the "make".

Re: WTS surprise tenant

While wading the BFB I had a pair of them try to get busy while using my legs as props. Thank goodness I was young cause it just about tested my cardiovascular system to the limit. I don't like eels!

Re: anyone getting out?

Against my better judgement hit a small WTS after the rain stopped, figured the larger streams were completely blown out. Lower section blown out and color of milk chocolate, went upstream about 1.5 miles, little better with flows still chocolate in color. http://i66.tinypic.com/2wd6jhw.jpg Sweet f...

Is that brown wild? Looks like a stockie on my end.
Well I got it from the upper SBR wild trout section and I know NJ doesn't stock browns so I gotta believe it's wild (power of deductive reasoning). I don't think its big enough to be a rouge club stocked fish.

Yesterday morning as a matter of fact. Fall was in the air. Only was able to sneak away for an hour of fishing yesterday. What to do, what to do....chase holdover stockies.....nah....explore the wild side! One brown to the net and a few other ldr. Not a bad Sunday morning stroll.
