I figured I would start this page now so that I have the hang of it by fishing season. Russel,nick and I headed out today in an attempt to put some trout on the stringer before the river close for the open day stocking preparations. We started off at the rockaway river with absolutely no success at all. After arguing for a good 20 minutes it came down to going to the pequest or flat brook which would be decided by a coin toss. After more arguing and several u turns the flat brook won the battle. All said and done after a few missed fish 4 nice brookies made the stringer. We had a nice day on the river. Mark modoski also fished a lake in south jersey and had the line tight on pan fish all day. The fish are few and far between but if you can get off the beating path and put some time in there are fish still to be caught. Conditions today were beautiful with crystal clear water and a slight breeze.
