Default Raritan River: bass and trout

8 days ago the river temps were 70F, yesterday it bottomed at 55F!
And today it started to warm up just a bit.

After a cleanup with AndyS, I hit the river in the same stretch.

I was using a 1/4 oz jig with a Zman TRD in PB+J color, ned rigged.
(Thanks for the zmans, Andy)

Nailed three nice smallmouth in some fast + deep water in a nice run,
then last fish was a surprise rainbow trout.

I then fished some slower sections downstream with a mix of some runs, nothing there.
Tough for me to find these smallmouth in this big river They got so many places to hide

Whole river to myself on a Saturday.









Nice pic of the river i snapped some trips ago.

Surprised you found so much trash. The place looked pretty clean last time I was there.

Clean up those Bitsy Minnows and keep them in your tackle box, they are dynamite!

Gonna need new hooks it seems. Unless somehow the rust isnt as bad as it looks and I can just sharpen them. Expect a follow up report of them catching fish perhaps, lol.
