Open Water Fishing 2006

February, 2006

Break Out Your Bass Gear - Winter is Here!

While the unseasonably warm weather since late December has disappointed ice anglers, there were many opportunities now for shoreline and boat fishing on open waters in January and into February. Trout have been caught from the shore at Round Valley Reservoir, and smallmouth bass are hitting hard in the Delaware River.

Take advantage of the open water and get in some open water fishing without the crowds. Remember, a 2006 Fishing License is now required...and is available on the new On-line Fishing License Website.

Below examples of what's available during winter periods of open water. Click on each image to enlarge.
