Re: Upper SBR

I fished that area about 2 weeks ago and caught a few wild browns (6" - 7"). Very tight fishing quarters but I had a lot of fun catching those browns. Just need to look for the deep pockets to fish. I caught the browns on bead head hares ear nymph fished without a strike indicator.

Re: Nymphing - going to the dark side

My last few outings have involved me suckily thrashing the water in vain with dries (using attractor patterns and terrestrials given no visible rises or hatch activity) and being spurned by almost every fish. I have decided to try to become a better nymph fisherman. I have done well in the past wit...

Did you catch them on a small stream or main river, like the Musky or N Branch?
Upper sections of the South Branch Raritan River.

The last "Forum" on the main GST index page is actually a link that will take you to a very similar page!
I hate to admit this but I never noticed it there.

Re: Wild NJ Browns

One of my goals for 2018 was to catch a NJ wild brown trout. I can cross that off my list as I managed to land 3 nice little wild browns today. All were between 6" to 7" but jumped like they were twice that size. Now I need to go after the brookies!!! https://i.imgur.com/YeWNRHmm.jpg https://i.imgu...

Re: Raritan river, Clairmont TCA

I was lucky enough to have off from work today and fished that area. I managed to land 3 wild browns, all around 6" and caught about twice as many trees!!!

Re: New Stretch of River (at least for me)

Nice pics. I fish that stretch occasionally, nice looking water but has severe thermal issues during the Summer and few to none holdovers, exception would be the deepest pools. The pools weren't that deep except for the run just after the dam. Hopefully it will stay cool enough to fish for a while ...

New Stretch of River (at least for me)

I got out for a few hours early on Saturday to try a section of the Rockaway River that I have never fished before. Spent about 2.5 hours on the river and managed to land 3 rainbows and lost a few others. Here are a few photos. https://i.imgur.com/OVJKMZZl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/J0V1IH7l.jpg https:...

Re: Flat Brook on Monday

Sounds like a good day to be on the water. I remain somewhat concerned over the all rainbow stockings that are with us for several more years at the least and their effects on license sales and trout stamp sales. But hopefully the raceways get covered and solar powered soon and the Division can onc...

Flat Brook on Monday

I hit one of my go to spots on Flat Brook on Monday and the stockie rainbows did not disappoint. Landed 7 and lost a bunch more (barbless hooks). Most took bead head flashback pheasant tail nymph but I got a few on the surface using a parachute adams and also got a few using a wet fly on the swing. ...

We do monthly disaster recovery tests on the generator and transfer switch at our office, hard to believe that the hatcheries wouldn't do the same.
You've not worked for a government entity before have you????
