The Passaic River continues to fish well for northern pike according to Joe over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. Big swimming plugs, spinnerbaits and shiners are taking the pike from the deeper holes in the river. Most serious anglers are fishing after dark which makes for better releases of the pike, Joe said. He also mentioned that most of the northern reservoirs and large lakes continue to fish well for smallies and largemouth on swimbaits, Ned Rigs and live bait. An early and late day surface bite is being seen in Verona Lake and most local small lakes and ponds.

A call to Joe over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle got us a report of short fluke dominating the catch in the bay, but better size fluke being caught outside in deeper water. Joe too told us of some really good size ling, keeper sea bass, whiting and occasional cod filling coolers. He said if you are looking for some decent light tackle fishing cocktail blues, croakers, spot and some kingfish are serving up the fishing along the lower side of the bay, mainly on the top of the outgoing water.

The Passaic River and good pike fishing was at the top of the list when I spoke with Cheryl over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. She told us anglers fishing from Kayaks and wading the river are finding some good pike fishing in some of the deeper holes. In addition to the pike catfish, smallies and panfish are also supplying some good fishing. She also mentioned some decent bass and crappie fishing in some of the local small ponds on jigs and swimbaits and live bait.

Another person that told us of some slow fluke fishing was Cheryl over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. She said while a good many anglers had stopped in at the store to pick up some fluke gear the cold water from the southerly winds sure didn’t help the fishing. She also said they had heard of a few stripers still being caught, and some decent catches of cocktails in the bay.
