Main stem Raritan river 11/25/2021:

Post by BillSmith » Thu Nov 25, 2021 6:02 pm

Fished the main stem Raritan river at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater, got 3. The river is NOT fall stocked and listed NT (non trout) by the division. Sad to think the duck pond in Edison gets fall stocked but not the main stem Raritan river. Looks like the last 60* day for a while. All fish released after photos.

Beautiful looking fish. I lived right around the corner from 2000-2006 and would hit that stretch whenever I could. The outcropping of jagged shale combined with the hemlock trees makes you think you're up higher north than Bridgewater.
