    Got out to a local nj stream today for an hour and had fun catching little rainbows on a 3 wt.

    Landed 6 and had many long distance releases. Also had one small toothy critter.

    WTG Rob. Won't ask what stream but what were you using. Glad you had a day.

    Ron,

    The purist in me would love to tell you what type of bug I was imitating but truth be told, I didn't expect to find any trout... Thought there would only be panfish so I was drifting a white trout magnet ( think of it like a small white clouser ... Same thing)

    One flash near a logjam and I knew I was going to have fun, they were all small but a real treat!

    Default Barnegat

    Barnegat inlet area didn't fish well yesterday. A few shorts. Water was 51 degrees and filthy. Same muddy brown we saw in DE bay (Lewes area) last weekend.

    Bummer John, but at least you got out. Might (should not) be able to try this PM. Over a solid week of wind here. (sound familiar?)

    Rob Understand perfectly & sounds as though you had a good plan.

    Nice trout, at least you have fishable conditions and are able to have some fun.

    After Sandy and the northester is looks like us fly fishermen have been shut out of the game with cold dirty water and high winds and we are all looking and waiting for some incouraging signs. I came home form Thanksgiving holiday with family and with the very high winds and dirty water canceled fly charter for today.

    keep getting calls from those that want to catch bass on the fly as they know they are catching decent fish in Delaware bay on bunker, but with the dirty water and no signs of bait the fly fishing is as dead as it gets right now. Keep telling them the water needs to clean up a bit to even have a shot and they all want to be called back when the action gets good.

    Hope to get out soon if we get a nice weather day, but there is not a lot of time left before I pull the boat. Need at least a few nice days as it would be a real bummer to end the season the way conditions are now.

    Default Still In A Holding Pattern

    Checked out the beach and the back bay today. No signs of life along the beach front. Talked to some surf fisherment using bunker and clams and all they got was a few skates. No signs of birds or bait. Water is getting getter better. It looks like chocolate milk instead of liquid mud, so hoping it will be fly fishable soon. Back bay looks a little cleaner but still less than one foot of visibility.

    Mike,

    I had originally posted the pic, but it was overwritten.

    A small pickerel... they run throughout this stream... especially the lower areas near the tidal influence
