Fishing Report 10/14/2021
With some cooler weather and less boat traffic, there is still some great fishing going on here at Lake Hopatcong.
We are seeing nice walleye in the 3 to 5 pound range, caught while jigging, and also on bait. There are still hybrid stripers being seen, caught off any of the points on Rapala ice jigs or herring. And, lots of white and yellow perch, along with some crappie.
We have seen some pickerel in the last few days also. Jim Welsh weighed in with two nice channel cats in the 4 to 5 pound range caught on herring.
The state will be having their second free fishing day of the year on Oct. 23, where no license is required. It’s the perfect time to try fishing to see if it’s something you like.
Have a great week!
