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 - January 27, 2021
To all of our friends in JSTU, this winter continues to be troubling with the virus still around which means we can not get together at the field house for the forseable future. I do have some good news for everyone - the fishing has been ok on the South Branch, Musky and my favorite, the Pequest. Eggs, small midges, pheasant tails are the hot ticket right now. However, in mid-February through mid-March the little black stones (size 18 and 20) show up on the South Branch and Musky. If you do go out to fish remember to get your 2021 fishing license.
Some additional final thoughts:
- Please keep an eye on the PA, NJ and NY fishing regulations for changes and opening day dates due to the virus.
- PA has a youth day set for Saturday March 27, 2021 and one statewide opening day of April 3, 2021.
- NJ opens April 10, 2021. Just in time for the Hendrickson’s.
- NY as always opening day is April 1, 2021.
- NJDEP fish and wildlife may or may not have volunteers to help stock the streams and rivers due to the virus.
Please be safe and wear masks, and when you can get an appointment, get the vaccine.
