2024 Trout Per Month Challenge


Recommended Posts

What a great way to spend the day.  Nice looking trout. 

I've got too many hobbies to do this but wish I could.  Trout fishing is my roots.  It's all Dad and I did every weekend. 

This month though when it's decent out want to keep on my brush cutting projects and would like another rabbit for the freezer.  But I need to trout fish a little more this year.

cant fish the same spot twice ? 

Thats fun, I couldnt use my "go to" spots when I absolutely had to get a fish lol. I have a couple streams in my log that I got skunked on, including the very spot @crappyice had that great day above. I did lose a really big brown at the net. Will definitely return for redemption

We need to add a twist of some kind. And no @Bucksnbows "must be on a dry fly" aint it!!

I do remember one cold January overcast day with snow flurries when I found pods of trout feeding on midges on top and I landed a bunch on a Griffith’s gnat dry.  That was on NJ’s Musconetcong River the same day TU called to offer me a staff position to protect and restore that river and its watershed about 19 years ago now.

Also I cant wait to get back to the Musky and explore more. Does it holdover decent numbers of fish? Worth a winter visit?

Yes and yes. Point Mountain Trout Conservation Area is good. If we hook up, I can take you to private property with great holdover fishing.  And it always helps to fish any public water between club waters. Clubs stock year round and, as it turns out, fish can swim and leave where they were stocked….

Slob of a brown (maybe the one you lost net side?) rose once yesterday. Then the sun went behind some clouds and the bite turned off altogether.

I need to hit more wild streams and lessen the number of stockies. I also need to give mousing a try. Maybe May 31st...catch one 11:59pm and then check off June 1 minute later!

Id be hard pressed to find a stocker in the winter, we are lucky to have several wild quality and wild premier streams within an hour or so. Zero under an hour though which is a bummer
