GST Fishing Camaraderie Day 5/22/22 @ the lower KLG

Post by BiggerThomas » Wed Apr 27, 2022 8:39 am

May is a magical time to fish in NJ. Anyone who's interested in establishing some GST fishing camaraderie, please arrive at the lower/South KLG lot https://goo.gl/maps/bXRPxQK7YCvLTnLz6 by 9 am Sunday, May 22nd. If you own a bamboo rod, feel free to fish it--that's what I'll be doing. Hope to see you there. Make sure you're licensed to fish in NJ and feel free to bring something to eat for a "shore lunch."

Thanks for setting this up BT! I hope to see many of you there. And yes, I do still exist!

Rusty, can I fish beads on my 'boo? :lol:

I will mark it down. I plan to be there. I will bring some rods along as well. Tom will be nymphing, so he will be fine with graphite. :lol:

I'll go if my wife lets me. usually this wouldn't be an issue but there are extenuating circumstances right now. I will bring 3 boo rods if I can make it. No one is allowed to touch or even look at them... ;) ;) ;) ;) :D

I added to my calendar. I'll try my best to be there, would be nice to meet you all in person.

One concern, doesn't that lot only hold a dozen or so vehicles? Is there alternative parking? I only hit the Gorge during the winter months. Rumor has it if you don't camp out over night in May, good luck finding parking. ;)

It holds a few more than that, they expanding it a fews years back. I think you can get 20-24 in there. Best we can hope for a cool, cloudy and drizzly day. Bad for fair weather dog walkers, perfect for fishing.

Good to hear, haven't been there in a couple of years, and if I recall correctly I parked by the Hoffman bridge (infamous parking spot) and fished into the Gorge.

2 options, park on the high bridge entrance parking lot or on the other end by hoffman x bridge about 1\4 mile on the bend & walk down. Either way your looking @ a 1\2 mile walk to get into prime water

Hi Guys, Hate to ask this but how do you get to the lower parking area as I have only fished the gorge two times and parked in the upper end of the gorge. I will be coming up from Rte.31 onto I think it is called 513. When I get onto 513 or it could be 512. All Iknow is that I get onto 31 off 78 then take first right on to 512 or 513 never really looked at any signs. So if you should give me directions I will try to make it. Bill Vance AKA. Bill the mailman. I will bring my Madison which is 55 years old 71/2 foot

I like most dogs, it's the dog walkers that I can f'n do without. Guess I'm just not a people person or to paraphrase Dave Mustaine....who says I'm not kind.....just not their kind. :)

I LOVE 99% of all the dogs I meet :D . If they arent friendly or well trained. I blame the parents of the dogs for not training them to be socialized :o
