Re: Happy New Year --- 2021

I managed my first, and only, trout of 2021 today, a Garden State foot-long wild rainbow that succumb to a Red-Butt Conehead Woolly Bugger... hits were tough to come by with a winter weather advisory laying claim to the NY/NJ region...

Re: Whose fishing now?

i was out yesterday, mainly because I was curious if there was any sign of spawning activity yet. Water temps have been a bit high to trigger it yet, but it is getting to be late enough in the season that it needs to start soon. I found three redds; no fish on them. I didn't fish in that area.
