Click here to enlarge Tip&Trick Description 1: 'Greenwood Lake'


Greenwood Lake is located in both New Jersey and New York. There are several launching ramps throughout the lake located in both states. The ramps are well maintained, and can accommodate both large and small boats. In the southern end of the lake, at South Shore Marina, there are a couple ramps, and there are others, all the way to the upper end at Olde Point Marina in New York. Many of the marinas are full service, with restroom facilities, gas, picnic areas, and lodging. When you get about half way up the lake, at Happy Landing Marina, that is where the New York portion starts, in the Sterling Forest area. This is one of New Jersey's larger lakes at 1,920 acres, and it has a maximum depth of 57 feet at full pool.

Lake Profile

Greenwood Lake is a natural lake, located mostly in the state of New York. Belcher Creek is the main tributary.

In the winter, drawdowns lower the water in Greenwood about 2 to 5 feet. The water is Eutropic, with frequent algae blooms in the summer. Visibility is from about 3-6 feet, but sometimes it becomes cloudy after it rains, especially near the shore. In the summer there is a thermocline at about 20 feet. Most of the original lakebed, and the South flat, have muck and silt, but the rest of the lake has a hard bottom, that is mostly boulders and rocks, and the rest is sand and gravel. There are a lot of submerged points and humps throughout the lake. The lake has steep hills, and small wetlands are in the South and north ends. Most of the shoreline is privately owned, and has a lot of houses and marinas.

Species Available

The main species are largemouth bass, Muskies, and smallmouth bass. There are other species also, such as Chain Pickerel, Yellow Perch, Bluegills, and Walleye. There are also good populations of catfish. There is a lot of pressure at Greenwood, but catch and release fishing allows Greenwood to maintain a good population of Largemouth bass. It is rated among New Jersey top 3 Largemouth bass waters. Most of the bass average around 15 inches, but we have caught seven pounders on occasion. Smallmouth fishing is getting better, but the largemouth bass still outnumber them. Sometimes smallmouths in the 4 to 5 pound range are caught, and some nice Chain Pickerel are caught also. We generally use suspending jerk-baits, such as a Rapala, or a Rogue, in shad patterns, for the largemouth and Chain Pickerel early in the year. Muskies have been stocked also, and in early 1991, the state started stocking Tiger Muskies also. I don't generally fish for them myself, but friends and other anglers tell me that they are doing well. Greenwood is loaded with panfish, especially white perch, and they catch a lot in the 1-2 pound range. The main forage base is alewife, and panfish, along with Golden Shiners, and various minnows.

Best Times and Locations

The best times for Largemouth bass is in the spring, starting in April, or when the water reaches about 50 degrees. As soon as the water reaches about 53-55 degrees, the bass move to the shallows. The bays and coves are loaded with stumps and weeds, and they turn on first. We have had good luck in the past fishing the two channels at Greenwood Lake Village, and west of Fox Island. We start working the cover in these areas with lipless crankbaits, usually in shad patterns. The bass usually start spawning in early May, and it lasts until the middle of June. Floating Rapalas, soft Jerk-baits, and Senkos work the best. Although we have taken them on lizards and tubes also.
The bass in Greenwood like weed beds, but avoid the ones that have been treated, as they don't produce well. We stay on the outside edges in about 10-12 feet of water, and the areas around Storms Island and north of Fox Island,
are the best. Another good location is the shallow beds west of Fox Island, and north of Chapel Island. We use a lot of topwater baits here in the summer, and have had the best results with Zara Spooks, Nip-A-Dee-Dees, and Terminator buzzbaits, at dawn and dusk. During the day, we like to use Senkos, or 4' worms, and cast them to the edges of the grass, and in pockets. Docks and piers hold bass all day long. Try skipping a Senko or worm as far back under the docks into the shaded areas as possible. The farther back the better.
If you are after smallmouth bass, concentrate on the deeper, rockier, New York portions of the lake. Smallmouth bass seem to like the combinations of weeds and rocks, especially on points. The 10-12 foot depths, on the drop-offs, where there is a gravel bottom work the best. We have caught some nice smallmouths at night also, by casting small topwater baits, such as Pop-R's. Early in the mornings, you will do well with a 1/2 ounce Rat-L-Trap in about 2-6 feet of water, where there is a gravel bottom.
You can get a lot of good information about Greenwood from the local tackle stores, and some have maps with GPS locations. Remember to practice Catch, Photo, and Release, and there will be great fishing in Greenwood for many years to come

Report Description: Capt. George Landrum
Fly Hooker Sportfishing


WEATHER: Have you been here in September before? Then you probably know that we are
having temperatures in the 80-100 degree range with the humidity up in the 70% area. A bit on
the muggy side most of the time and we have been having some overcast sky, mostly in the
mountains with a chance of rain every now and then! Wednesday we actually had some rain and
that was nice. Not a lot of wind this week except for the first few days, and then it was pretty
light out of the northwest. (Borrasca)

WATER: The Pacific side has been great with large swells early in the week from the passing
of Tropical Depression 11W but not much chop to go with it. Later in the week the swells died
down to 2-4 feet. The water on the outside of the Golden Gate Bank was reported to be a bit
green but elsewhere it was nice and blue. The Cortez has been blue as well and surface conditions
have been great, very calm. From the 22*40” line on north on the Sea of Cortez the water has
been between 84 and 88 degrees, south of the line the water has been 83-81 degrees. This
warmer water has extended in a finger to the west into the Pacific out to just past the San Jaime
Banks. (Bajo La Luna Mix)

BAIT: Early in the week there were plenty of Caballito available but this weekend there
appeared to be a shortage for boats leaving after 7am. Few Mullet were available and I heard of
no Sardinas for sale. Boats getting bait were paying the usual $2 per bait. (Dancing Under The


BILLFISH: The billfish bite has slowed down a lot, with fewer Striped Marlin being found, on
average, and the Blue Marlin bite has remained about the same. Not to say there are not Marlin
being caught, because there are, but not in the numbers of the last few weeks. There have been
some Sailfish being caught as well, mostly found mixed in with the Dorado. The Striped Marlin
are being found in a straight line, east to west, 12-15 miles south of the cape. The Blue Marlin
have been slightly inside the line, on the warm side. Right place, right time with a live bait for the
Striped Marlin and almost all of the Blue Marlin have been on lures with the favorite colors this
week being the usual blue/black/purple, Mean Joe Green, Dorado and Petrolero. (La Rosa

YELLOWFIN TUNA: Without a doubt the Yellowfin have been the highpoint of the week. The
fish have been found from 16 to 40 miles out, all on the cooler side of the temperature break, and
all the fish caught have been mixed in with the Porpoise. The first few boats to the schools have
been able to get fish and some of them have been big ones! I have seen fish this week running
from 15 pounds to 200+ pounds and some boats have gotten more than one of these larger fish.
Marlin lures and live baits have been the ticket although slow trolling spreader bars has brought
up some fish after they have been hit hard by everyone else. Not every boat has been getting the
larger fish but most of them have been able to get at least on pass on the school where they have
picked up a few of the smaller footballs. (Bullfighter’s Dream)

DORADO: The number of Dorado caught this week has dropped off a bit and the average size
has gotten a bit smaller on the schooling fish, but the singles that have been caught have all been
nice ones, most of them from #35 on up. Inside the temperature break and all the way up to the
shoreline is where most of them were found this week and as usual the larger fish were caught on
Marlin lures and the smaller fish on Tuna lures or cut bait dropped back behind a hooked fish.
(Driving 2 Madrid/B4 The Storm)

WAHOO: “What Hoo?” I saw no Wahoo this week, and only a few flags that may have been
either Wahoo or Shark, it was hard to tell! (The Storm Sings)

INSHORE: Inshore the fishing has been fair for Roosterfish and Jack Crevalle to 30 pounds and
going just a bit outside has given anglers good fishing for Bonito and Skipjack, with some of these
fish in the 15-20 pound range, nice fighting size! In that same range and going further out there
have been fair shots at Dorado, both trolling and drifting with live bait. (1st Rain/Cry Of Faith)

NOTES: If you are coming down to fish be prepared to purchase a fishing license either before
you arrive or as soon as you get here. It’s better to get one before you arrive if you can because
the license office here has posted hours but they are rarely followed. Often you must wait for the
guy to show up, the paperwork takes a long time then you have to go to the bank to pay for the
license, go back to the office with copies of the stamped payment slip to get the license. This
process can take up to two hours to get through if the office is open when you arrive. For the
past year most anglers have not been able to get licenses because of this, and the office will not
sell boat owners stacks of blank licenses to sell on the boats. If you arrive at the airport in the
afternoon and plan to fish the next day, forget it, it can’t get done. As boat owners we used to be
able to go in the day before and purchase licenses with the anglers names and hometowns on
them, but the office has decided that you must be there in person with I.D. to get a fishing license.
Oh, and by the way, you can’t get them in the morning because the seller says it is too much work
for him to get up early in the morning. The reason I am going on about this is because this week
the Army guys with automatic weapons have been boarding boats coming into the marina after a
days charter and checking for licenses. No license, the fish get confiscated and sometimes the
fishing gear as well. We are trying to get something worked out, figure out some way for this to
work, but it has been difficult. That is why I recommend that you purchase your fishing license
before you arrive. Next week I’ll get into the fish filleting situation! This weeks report written to
the soothing sounds of Ottmar Liebert + Luna Negra on their 1991 Higher Octave release
