Recent rains have given streams, lakes and reservoirs a boost in the northern portion of the state, said Mark over at Tackle World. After several weeks of low water trout streams benefited most from the rains and trout fishing in the major streams should be good well into the middle of June or longer. Bass spawning is done in most waters and the bass are on the feed in the post spawn areas in most lakes. The Passaic is settling down and fishing well for pike, smallies, catfish and carp. Mark finished up his report by saying some good bass and panfish is also being seen in local small ponds and lakes.

Striped bass fishing doesnt get any better that what we are seeing along the northern coast, said Mark over at Tackle World. Mark said anglers are tolling mojos, spoons and umbrella rigs dressed with shads, live lining bunker and fishing tin and topwater baits for the bass. Here too the word on the bottom fishing as excellent catches of knuckleheads, ling, whiting and a few cod continue to keep rods bent for railbirds.

Trout fishing remains one of the better fisheries in the northern portion of the state said Mark over at Tackle World. Low stream levels had pushed the trout into the deeper pools and better oxygenated areas and this really turned on the fly fishing to nymph and dry fly fishermen. Late week rains put some much needed water in the streams and this should extend the fishing well into June, he said. On the lake front some lakes are seeing the bass on the beds while others are seeing the bass move into post spawn areas.

A call to Mark over at Tackle World got us another report of excellent striped bass fishing in Raritan Bay and in the ocean down from the Hook. Mark said bass, blues, sea bass and even a few keeper fluke provided some good fishing all week. However the weekend blow really shut things down along the entire coast.
