    Wild Browns?

    Fished the Black River today in Hacklebarney, above the TP section. Landed 9, 3 clearly stocked, the other 6 I originally thought were wild, but now I am not sure. They were caught in the TM section, where I have caught maybe 3 or 4 wild fish in the past three years. It seems odd that I land 6 in one day. Anyone else catching wild browns in this section? Or are they actually stocking small, colorful browns with perfect fins? Just the other day I also landed 2 browns that I thought were wild on the SBR. They were caught in a section I have never caught wild browns from. From left to right, the first 4 are from the Black, the last from the SBR. Sorry for the sideways pictures. Wild or stocked?

    Two winters ago we had a phenomenal year class of wild trout. The fall flows were high which helped get fish into their spawning grounds and then the winter was warm and the water levels dropped to fairly low. Fish hatched out earlier and had ample food and higher metabolisms due to warm, low water all winter and into early spring of 2012. Those are the small 4" - 7" wild fish we are catching this year.

    Re: Wild Browns?

    NIce to see all those wild fish doing well in NJ......Most of the wild browns I catch don't have the orange spots that some of those do......I haven't fished the Black River in 18 years, but the SBR is the river I fish the most, and the first and second pictures are more indicative of the wild browns I catch there and in the local creeks.......I am sure they are all wild and really nice fish....


    You know...I looked again and they all have orange spots.......maybe I need to look closer at the fish I catch....

    Those look all wild to me. I catch similar looking ones in Hacklebarney a lot.

    Re: Wild Browns?

    The TM and TP limits and classifications are meaningless. I've caught wild fish in non-trout and trout maintenance waters and found no trout in trout production waters. I wouldn't rely on them too much. Fish everywhere and then make your own list :-)
