The news from Joe over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle set the tone for most of our other reports when he said striped bass fishing continues to be very good in northern waters and some of the best fishing has been along the middle of the state. It looks like more bass moved into Raritan Bay and from about mid-week on keepers and shorts were in good supply. On the blackfishing front the fishing has been up and down depending on the current conditions. There is still plenty of tog in the backwaters of the bay, and some of the reefs have also been seeing some fair catches.

The word from Joe over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle was continued good northern pike fishing in the Passaic River amid some higher water levels. In addition we were also told of continued good trout fishing in the fall and winter stocked streams and lakes. Some of the small local lakes and ponds also produced some good crappie fishing with a few bass and pickerel, mixed in.

We got several reports from Joe over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. He said pike fishing in the Passaic River is still serving up some good fishing and should continue to do so as water temps cool down. In addition he said Greenwood Lake is giving up a mix of walleyes, perch and smallies; Monksville is also producing the same mix of fish; Round Valley is seeing decent shoreline fishing for trout, rock bass, smallies and yellow perch and Budd Lake is producing northerns and pickerel. Joe also told us water levels in the northern streams came up with the Tuesday nigh rains and trout fishing remains good in most streams.

?While the numbers of anglers fishing northern waters is dropping, the striper fishing is good and still worth the effort,? said Joe over at Fairfield Fishing Tackle. Joe told me traffic coming into the store is switching more to people picking up presents for Christmas, than gear they need right now for fishing. Here too the word on the blackfishing is slowly picking up, but waters are still warm for this time of the year. Some party boats are starting to do their late season offshore fishing and so far sea bass, porgies, triggerfish, ling and a few cod are supplying some good fishing. It will be interesting to see how many anglers will be bottom fishing this winter, especially with the poor economy we have, he said.
