    Sea run? - You'll have to go a lot further north.

    Landlocked - Here in NJ, Lake Aeroflex, and Lake Wawayanda , in Sussex County, have both been stocked.
    I haven't heard much about them as destination Salmon fisheries, but you used the word "possibly".

    BTW: In a NJ forum, "Tristate" can be confusing as to what you mean.
    In the northern sections it could be NJ, NY, PA, or NJ, NY, Connecticut, further south, MD and DE might get into the mix.

    There are a few places but we are talking small returns , so I don't love your odds of landing an Atlantic on our eastern sea board . The Penobscot would be your place but still , how lucky do you feel?

    Definitely an artificial setup, but also a close opportunity to catch a large Atlantic.

    New Hampshire stocks Atlantic into a few places on the Pemigewasset and Merrimack Rivers. Its a 5 hour drive, but thats the best chance I know of. If you want details, I can PM you good spots.

    Google the NYS DEP they have several stocked locations for Atlantic's that run. Think finger lakes.

    The Penobscot is closed to fishing for Atlantic's. That fishery is years away from recovery, if ever.

    7 days without fishing, makes one weak.

    Re: Atlantic Salmon Where are ya

    JCstikfish, thnx for that link , i would consider a trip. IMHO i am all for continued support for Atlantic Salmon restoration on rivers/creeks where its feasible. I have caught small Atlantics on certain Ontario Tribs, I have also witnessed a huge 25 pounder caught too.They are right up there IMHO with Steelhead.Cohos are also a great fight too. I wonder if they have stocked them in the lakes mentioned Aerostock and Wawayanda do they have feeder creeks or brooks?Maybe there is a small spawining run?

    At the rate they keep gettin rid of those dams on the Penobscot, and with continued support from hatchery raised wild stock one day there will be fishable populations again.

    Pound for pound I will take an Atlantic any day over a steelhead or coho, not that I would kick either to the curb as I am a steelhead junkie. While only having fished the Lake O. tribs in hopes to catch one, I have hooked two and landed just one Atlantic which was in the 12lb range since I started fishing the area in 2007, let's hope for better returns in the upcoming years.
