Also good advice to stop in a shop like Shannon's or Tight Lines. They hook you up with good fies for early season. Once you get a basis of what flies you like to fish you can order them online. I use fly shack or cabelas mostly.
Wolly buggers along with Gold ribbed hares ears (beaded and plain) are my go to flies for NJ streams. If I use a streamer it it is almost always a Grey Ghost or a Muddler Minnow.

I would also add a few terrestrials such as ants.

In additon to the other places mentioned, Ramsey Outdoors has a good selection of flies, especially the one in Succasunna.

Since I am new to fly fishing... i have a newbie question....

Can I fish for Trout in the Black River now or do I have to wait until April?

I am going to release regardless.

Thanks!

Where ever they stock for spring, you cannot fish until opening day. However some exceptions for streams like klg.

No, Black River is closed under the general trout regulations. Check the NJDFW website, it explicitly defines where you can and can't fish during the closed season. Besides Black River is close enough to the South Branch that you can hit the special regulations area's of that river which are better anyways.
