The thermometer reached 60 degrees today, providing us with one of the last mild and sunny days for the foreseeable future.
After addressing a few chores at home, I decided to spend a couple hours on the Muconetcong River. Started out with streamers and egg patterns, but neither proved effective, so I switched to a weighted prince nymph, which had worked on my last outing.
This chunky 14″ rainbow below with a tail like a paintbrush eagerly took the nymph and also put up a nice fight on its way to the net.
While the fishing has slowed considerably, the girth of the fish caught has increased. There are some real footballs out there. Enjoy!
