Has anybody fished the Split Rock Reservoir. I went once last year and caught some nice small mouth off the banks. I want to get a little boot in there to really do some fishing.

It is in Rockaway. Was made open to public fishing about three years ago. They allow car top boats with electric motors only i think. but they might not allow motors at all. i'm trying to find something that says the boating regs.

If it's car topper only, get yourself a canoe or one of those little b [no swearing please] boats... check the local sporting goods places for them. Also, you may want to check ebay, I was recently looking and found a few in NJ that never sold or went pretty cheap ($400 for a 10 foot jon boat with oars, PFD's, etc.) I ended up buying mine from a guy in lebanon.

Split Rock has no fish! Stay away from there. Never go there. I repeat there are no fish in there at all! You'll hate it there. I think it's haunted too! If you fish there you'll have 13 years bad luck!

Funnny you say that JerseyJim. My father used to go there when he was kid, and said him and all his friends would say it was haunted.

Ive been fishing there for around 20 years! It is awesome! I liked it better when it was not public! The haunted stories have been around for a long time! I have seen some wierd things there... I'll share some of them when I have more time!

I have a 14 foot jon boat with a trailer for sale, with 2 Minn Kota electrics and a hummingbird fish finder. It's not fancy, and the fish finder is not mounted, you will have to do that. I haven't used it in years. The first $600.00 takes it.

Geez...I can't thank you guys enough for spilling the beans on one of the neatest places I know about in the outdoors in NJ[mad]

seriously though--I really think that hill is the last unpaved road in NJ..at least this part of NJ.

It sure is pretty up there.

I spent a great deal of my teens and early 20's at SplitRock! 4 wheel'en, Riding my quad, Fishing, Partying, swimming ect. ect... It's one of my favorite places on this big ol'rock called earth!
I liked it better when it was private! The garbage some of these slobs are leaving behind makes me sick![mad]
