About Jersey Shore Trout Unlimited
Trout Unlimited's mission is to conserve, protect and restore North America's trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds. It is a private, non-profit organization with 125,000 members in 500 chapters nationwide. The Jersey Shore Chapter was established in Oct 1989.
The members of the Jersey Shore Chapter of Trout Unlimited primarily reside in the central New Jersey coastal counties of Monmouth and Ocean. Our conservation activities include yearly stream cleanups and helping with the Sea Run Brown Trout stocking program run by the New Jersey Department of Fish and Wildlife. Our members enjoy both fresh and saltwater fly fishing, and the chapter runs a variety of trips and educational activities throughout the year.
Kevin's Corner for January
The holidays are coming to an end, and I hope everyone is safe and healthy. I guess it time to start trying to plan for 2021 fishing season. One thing first - remember to buy your 2021 fishing permits (and trout stamp if fishing in NJ).
If you are a hearty soul, try winter fly fishing.. With little Ice on the rivers, it is a good time to get outside and fish. The South Branch and Musky has been stocked by Shannon’s and the northern TU Chapters. If you go be careful dress in layers and use a wading belt and staff. Some of the fly’s that are working are egg patterns (my favorite) with Midges in tan, grey, and olive color in size 18-24 behind your point fly.
For you guys who do not like cold feet, try the Pequest river near the Hatchery the water is a lot warmer than the other rivers. Again us eggs and midges ( grey ). One other thing if you don’t mind the ride the Little Lehigh in Allentown Pa is fishing well. If you want to stay close try the Toms or Manasquan rivers..
Be safe and wear masks!
