It was fair week of fishing in freshwater this past week according to Nick at Bullet Hole Annex. He too mentioned some good fishing in the low Passaic River with both kayak fishermen and waders picking up smallies, largemouth, perch and panfish along with some nice northerns. Nick said Oakridge, Monksville, Round Valley and other northern reservoirs continue to fish well for smallies and largemouth. Lastly he mentioned that local small ponds and lakes are seeing their water levels drop and algae is starting to creep up in some waters. Panfishing has been very good with a few bass being caught early and late in the day, mainly on topwater baits and plastics.

“Once again cold water and hot weather combined to keep a lot of anglers off the water and make the fishing spotty,” said Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex. He said most of the better fluke fishing was in the ocean and around Verrazano Bridge. What bluefishing there was a good distance off the beaches. Bottom fishermen enjoyed good numbers of big ling, one fish limits of sea bass and occasional throwback cod. Most anglers stopping in the shop after fishing the brine said we simply need a change in the ocean currents and some warmer water.

Another person that gave us a good report on the fishing in the Passaic River was Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex. Nick said he too is hearing some nice pike being caught from the river along with smallies, largemouth, catfish and panfish. Nick echoed the news on the smallmouth and largemouth fishing in Oakridge, Round Valley, Merrill Creek and other northern reservoirs and said some of the smaller local lakes and ponds are seeing some good catfishing along with some early and late day bass action.

Fluke fishing was hot and cold depending on whom you spoke with and where they fished according to Nick over at Bullet Hole Annex. Nick said even with the cooler water some of the better fishing was in 50 to 60 feet of water outside in the ocean to the southeast of the Hook. Bluefishing in the bay continues to be mostly cocktails and average size blues. Some kingfish, spot and croakers are also being caught in the backwater areas and bottom fishing is a solid mix of nice size ling, one fish limits of blackfish and occasional whiting and cod.
