The following is the weekly report for fishing for Lake Hopatcong as provided by Dows Boat & Bait Shop and Aaron Graybill from Lake Hopatcong Guide Service.
- Fish are settling into their summer patterns with water temps reaching the 80 degree mark in the shallower water.
- Lots of big hybrid stripers are being caught now at night on rat-l-traps, top water heddon spooks, and bomber lures, and on live herring during the day.
- The Walleye bite has also been steady, hitting jerkbaits at night and vertical jigging and live bait has been best during the day.
- Crappie fishing has remained good, with lots of big yellow perch being caught on deep structure.
Lake Hopatcong Guide Service has recently expanded and is now offering guided fishing trips for up to 8 people on new 22’ pontoon boats.
