Mostly rainbows.
That fly is great, I used it under a FBPT but all fish were caught with the midge.
What's a FBPT? I guessing some pheasant tail variant.

Forgot to ask, what was the magic fly?
A tungsten beadhead hare's ear nymph tied on a barbless size 16 jig hook. I really like the jig hooks for the small streams, rarely get hung on on bottom.

Well done, thanks for sharing.

I was planning to go out, but never got motivated. :(
The snow made it tough hiking back to the stretch of the stream I wanted to fish.

Wild NJ Trout

Went out Sunday in search of some wild trout and was rewarded with a few great looking rainbows, no brookies or browns. Water temp was 40 and flow was perfect. Find the deep pocket water and you would find fish. https://i.imgur.com/AA1ZMMVl.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/StW2LuWl.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.co...

Brown in the net looks like it could be wild .

Agreed. I'm going to guess this is the Musky between Asbury and Bloomsbury. :)
Not the Musky, but a good guess.

Nice fish thanks for the pics. Upstate NY?

I hit a local WTS, caught two browns; nothing close to that size...LOL
Nope, these are Jersey trout! I'm guessing the browns were from a private club stocking that made their way into public water.

Cold Temp Fishing

Hit the river on Sunday morning, air temp was 29 and the water temp was 40. I managed to pick up 2 nice browns and a rainbow while fishing streamers.

Here is some trout porn for you to enjoy.

Re: Black River 10/28

I haven't fished there but it is on my list. A neighbor of mine says he fishes it in the winter and gets trout in the plunge pools beneath the waterfalls.

Fall Colors

I got out the other morning on what is turning out to be my favorite fall trout river determined to land a nice trout on a streamer. After about 5 casts I was rewarded with this nice brown that slammed a size 10 Beadhead Thin Mint streamer that I was fishing dead drift and let it swing across the cu...

the brown must be wild.
Looks like a Musky Hatchery Brown. Thinking it came from the SBR.
Didn't fish the SBR, these were all caught on a different river.

Great fish! Some of the rainbows don't look like recent stockers and the brown must be wild. What did you get them on?
The brown took a black woolly bugger fly fished on a dead drift, the bows hot either a Rapala count down lure in rainbow trout color or a TroutA-Control Ranger lure.

Fall Trout

I was lucky enough to have Thursday & Friday off from work so I hit the river to search for some of the fall stocked trout. I found great weather, great water flows river temps hovering around 50 degrees and very few other fishermen. Managed to land a total of 9 trout (8 rainbows from 13" to 16" and...

Re: WTS surprise tenant

Eel is one of my favorite fish to eat. Cut into 4" sections, split down the length of the belly, add a little kosher salt and grill it slow until the skin gets crispy and the flesh tender. Skin is the best part, but it MUST be crispy all the way through. Serve with a classic Italian tomato salad an...

Re: anyone getting out?

I'm not sure which stream you are referencing but on the small wild trout streams I have been fishing I have noticed a lot of blue herons, more than in the past. Those guys must be affecting the trout populations.

Always cool to see some wild rainbows, and that brookie is awesome...
That brookie is the largest I have caught in NJ. It came out form an undercut bank grabbed the fly and headed right bank under the bank. I wasn't sure if I was going to get it out with the 6x tippet I was using.

NJ Wild Trout

Went out again on Sunday looking for some NJ wild trout. Water temp was a cool 62, crystal clear and a great flow. Managed to land 7 rainbows and only 1 nice size brookie. Can't believe I didn't get into any browns since according to the state the section of the river I was fishing is listed as a "W...

Re: Good fishing after (another) round of rain...

Nice fish, I was hoping to get out today but just couldn't get free time. I'm thinking of going early tomorrow morning, hopefully the rivers will still be in good shape.
