Recommend me a north jersey lake

Recommended Posts

So this season I've been focusing on trying out as many different bodies of water as I can in my my general area.  I kinda got comfortable in a couple different places but I feel like I should search for that perfect body of water.  I live in north Bergen County and would be looking for a lake within an hour or so of where I live.  I'm particularly interested in the Highland Lakes and the reservoirs in the Rt. 23/Clinton area.  Here's where I've already fished in my area:

The Monksville (AKA Skunksville)

Green Turtle Pond

Campgaw Pond

Greenwood Lake

Shepherds Lake

Ramapo Lake

Spruce Run

Both the Lakes in the Ramapo Reservation

Bear Swamp Lake

Darlington Pond

White's Pond

Blue Lake (NY)

Lake Hopatcong

Pompton Lake

Potash Lake

I think that's pretty much it, although I'm sure I forgot a spot or two.  Also I'd prefer if it was manageable with a kayak, but I'm pretty sure most lakes in NJ are besides like Greenwood and Hopatcong.  Anyway thanks for reading, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys...

Zel, I was on njbassanglers until they started requiring donations to be a member, which is when I moved here.  So I know about most of the spots in NJ I'm really just looking for some suggestions as far as what's hot.  I've looked into Areoflex but have yet to fish it, but I forgot about Swartswood.  You have any further info on that lake?  Also I was recently recommended Silver Lake, which is off 23.  Any experience there?

just keep in mind this time of year there's lots of people at the beaches in highland lakes, and if you don't have a car sticker they'll block you in and you'll be waiting for hours to get out.  People get upset when they see someone without a parking sticker, especially when there's no spots left.

aeroflex is good, but it's very deep.  great trout lake.  not sure where silver lake is, do you know anything more than it's just off 23?  I hear swartswood lake is pretty good too, but I haven't fished it yet.
