Fly Fishing in New Jersey

With over 140 miles of coastline and numerous  rich bays, New Jersey is a paradise for anglers of all kinds. From the Hudson River to the Delaware Bay, there’s plenty to keep you entertained year-round, whatever you’re looking for. The real gem, though, is fly fishing in New Jersey. Go after a range of exciting and delicious fish using the skillful art form that is fly fishing, and the rewards will be endless! 

Who can go fly fishing?

Most people who go fly fishing will have some experience with a rod and reel. But if you’re a beginner, then New Jersey is a great place to start. With such an abundance of water, there are plenty of experienced guides to take you along the calm waters to teach you fly fishing. 
Avid anglers are welcome, too, with plenty of charters allowing you to bring your own gear to do battle with the fish. Let  your captain know what you want to target and do it all yourself. 

Where to Go and What to Catch

New Jersey is famous for its wealth of bays straddling the Atlantic coast. While Jersey Shore may be synonymous with beaches, bars, and parties, but the fishing on offer is something else. 
 
Get your fish on and come fly fishing in New Jersey’s famous bays, and you’ll be in for a real treat. From the Sandy Hook and Raritan Bays in the north, across the Barnegat, and round to the Delaware, there’s no end to where you can go to get your fly fishing fix.
 
Striped Bass are a favorite target of anglers all along the East Coast, and casting with a fly in New Jersey is no different. Along with Fluke, Seabass, Bluefish, Blackfish (Tautog), and even Drum, they’ll provide an exciting fly fishing adventure as you seek to fill the boat with something delicious to take home. 

When to Go

The beauty of fly fishing in New Jersey is that it’s possible all year round! Come at any time of year, and you can land one of the Garden State’s prized creatures. Come in summer for the hottest action, but there’s plenty of Fluke and Rockfish action in winter, while fall and spring will yield Blackfish and Bluefish.
 
You can decide how long you want to spend on the water, with trips running from four to eight hours. Most captains will tailor their trips to certain species, so make sure you know what you want out of your fly fishing adventure, and get booking!

How to Prepare

Fly fishing charters in New Jersey can take place aboard anything from a small bay boat to a monster offshore sportfishing vessel. Whatever you choose, you’ll be greeted with some soft drinks and maybe some snacks. Just make sure to bring something for lunch to maintain your energy.
 
And you’re ready to go! Wherever you are in New Jersey, you’re not far away from the chance to go fly fishing. There’s never a bad time to come, so why not make the Garden State your next destination?
