Lake Hopatcong Ranked Among 100 Best Bass Fishing Lakes in U.S.

May 2, 2013

For the second year in a row, Lake Hopatcong was ranked among the “100 Best Bass Lakes” by Bassmaster Magazine.  According to Bassmaster Magazine, the list was developed by consulting state agencies on catch rates, population studies and stocking schedules for all the fisheries they managed. B.A.S.S. Nation presidents and conservation directors were also consulted, as well as a panel of Elite Series pros, outdoor writers, industry professionals and B.A.S.S. members themselves.

Lake Hopatcong’s ranking as a top lake for fishing is deserved, as it offers some of the best fishing opportunities in the tri-state area.  A wide variety of game fish species can be found on Lake Hopatcong, including trout, largemouth and smallmouth bass, sunfish, bullhead, carp, yellow and white perch, hybrid striped bass, walleye and muskellunge. 

For anglers who don’t own their own boat, but want to experience the fun of fishing on Lake Hopatcong, Bridge Marina
offers pontoon boat rentals, as well as seasonal boating club memberships.  Fishing gear - and fishing tips - are also available at Bridge Marina's as well.
