10.0 in. Rainbow Trout caught by Dennis Huskins fishing in New Jersey on 04/07/14
10.0" Rainbow Trout caught by Dennis Huskins fishing on Monday April 07, 2014 at 13:14 near Bedminster in Somerset County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a aglia gold no tail #1 a In-Line Spinner by Mepps

So happy to post this little rainbow trout! First fish of 2014 for me. Letting you all know I am still around and actively fishing. Have tried in vain for months through a ruff winter and early spring. Then as a newly retired fisherman, I awaited opening day. Found out NJ had to exterminate 100,000 trout based on a virus at the hatchery. What a shame. Then I realized that all of the South branch of the Raritan was not stocked. Then I saw that the last stocking for the North Branch was last year. The Musky was non productive for opening day for me and others. Today I found a small area of the North Branch (by trial and error)with active Rainbow holdovers! Suddenly, I got about 15 bumps, 5 good hits, 3 hook ups, and landed 2. One 10 inches and a 13 incher that fell back in at the shore line pre photo. The hits lasted an hour and only on a Mepps. A micro Daredevel and a trout magnet went untouched.

Great story! I'm with Lenny - people don;t associate NJ with trout, but there are beautiful streams in the state!

Lenny, Thanks for the tip! I'm not that far away. Have fished below that area for Natives. Do you know if the Buttermilk Falls area is stocked??

I miss trout fishin' in Jersey. Hike up India Brook (Mendham); there is a hole, which we used to call Buttermilk Falls, that is usually loaded with trout, some of them trophies.
