NJ Wild Trout

Post by njcatchrelease » Mon Aug 27, 2018 10:55 am

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 "WILD BROWN TROUT ENHANCEMENT STREAM (Brown Trout dominant, other wild trout species may be present)"

Here are a few photos from the day.

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.

it is a nice one. Biggest native I have gotten was a 13 incher out of Bear Creek back when it still a WTS.
