The 2010 NJ Fish and Wildlife digest is available online.
I usually pick one up later in the season at a local outdoor store but it is nice to take a sneak peek.
Yes is time to get back into the swing of things, I have been out fishing on weekends, not many fish, no complaints here. Time in the outdoors with any water nearby is a good thing.
A recent drive up 17N had me going to the Ramapo area until some dark clouds were up ahead. A quick exit to an empty Saddle River is always a nice surprise. I get out to the upper Saddle River a few times a year. It is more of a nostalgic thing for me. In the early eighty’s my brothers friend Dave use to take me their and let me drive his camaro up Rt17 to the river when I had my learners permit. That was cool.
On this recent visit I saw a few small bass and tried dead drafting a hare”s ear past two trout with no luck. In the distance I heard a few cracks of thunder so it was time to wrap it up.
I spent the morning in the rain with my 10 year old son at a local stocked pond. A few other fisherman but not to bad, compared to the more popular places in the area.
Only stayed for an hour or so before the fingers started getting cold. I saw a few trout reeled up, which seemed to keep everyone going in the cool rain.
We came up empty but with kids its always fun, he had me cracking up with the things he does. Time well spent for sure.
