Re: Need a trout stream
I grew up in Monmouth Co. and know the Manasquan pretty well. Its not wading friendly and a bear to fish but if you can find the right area close to the estuary there are hidden surprises in there. The county though is severely limited on trout streams, there is the Hockhockson Brook in Tinton Falls (fairly lame), there is another in Colts Neck I can't remember the name (not really worth remembering), and unfortunately that might be it. Most, if not all only get stocked with surplus so they don't really see alot of fish and get fished out quick. The Conk or Metedeconk and the Toms are close enough in Ocean Co. and get a ton on fish like the Manasquan but there are not your typical trout water like further north and west. The S.B. Raritan is only about an hours drive from Atlantic Highlands and its worth it to hit the Gorge.
