Pcduane:

Thanks for the info, I changed the main marker description to incorporate what you said. A lot of the WTS designated by the NJDF&G that I have fished I have not been able to confirm brookies by catching any. I'd love for you to populate some new markers. Most fishermen don't want to target these little guys and most people that do, treat them very well. Anyway, thanks again for the info.

I just had to correct your description of this stream. It is by no means one of "only a few" wild brookie streams in NJ. There are well over 100 trout production streams in NJ, and over 50 of them contain wild brook trout.

Thanks for the info JBIV, I will give the small streamers a try and will keep it barbless. The only spots I've had real luck for native brookies are http://www.woosamonsa.com/fishing/nj-hances-brook.php & http://www.woosamonsa.com/fishing/bear-creek-shades-of-death.php

Dnorris,
Thank you. Teetertown is a great fishery and i've rarely gotten skunked there. Fish along hollow brook road and you will find a couple nice holes, but there are fish throughout the brook. I've hooked fish in shallow runs where I never would have expected. I've never had any luck w/ nymphs, and very rarely any rises to dries. I always fish a 5 ft 2 wt with tiny streamers mainly wooly buggers in white and olive. I was also notified that the brookies in that brook aren't just stream bred, but a native strain, so personally I think it's always a good idea to clip the barbs before fishing it. I've never seen anyone else fish here and always get weird looks from the people who see me there. oh well their loss =)

Fished today in the lower section at dusk with small bead head nymphs and did not see any sign of trout activity. Caught nothing. Hollow Brook is much smaller than I had thought and did not have many good pools that I came across in the lower section or any waterfalls big or small. Perhaps the upper section is more of the ravine. Need more exploration it got dark. What I saw was not promising though. The water quality is there but the stream is just too small.

Perhaps I was not even on the actual Hollow Brook, which may be the water along Hollow Brook Road. I will scout upstream from where I was on this stream as well as the stream off Hollow Brook Road when I come back to do some bouldering in the ravine.

Whatever the actual name of this stream may be, it is very pretty and looks trouty but tiny.
