Moormans River

This past weekend I was able to get out and do some early winter fly fishing on the headwaters of the Moormans River. The section I fished is a less than idylic setting but because it is stocked a few times a year by the local Trout Unlimited chapter you are sure to catch some beautiful rainbows.

The water was frigid and the fish happy to entertain these peach colored woolly buggers I was throwing them. Even though the fish were biting the cold got to me and I took off after just a few hours knowing there would be more days of winter trout fishing ahead.

It’s been such an odd start to summer here it’s almost like we’re fishing winter! All our rivers are flooding! Looking forward to more realistic summer weather!

The ghetto sections are always my favorite, old tires, old cars, etc. good habitat!

Great post. Got me thinking I need to not worry so much about the cold and get up to Kensico reservoir, maybe pick up some heattech first…there’s lakers waiting for me.
