Near Ridgewood, the Saddle River is not known by most fly fishermen as a river worth exploring. The state stocks the stream 4 times a year, and there tends to be a lot of fishermen out around those days.

Most fishermen do not realize that the upper section of the Saddle River has wild brook trout hiding out in many of the feeder streams to the Saddle River. Even during the warm days, these cool streams can be a fun challenge to fish.

The upper section of the Saddle River is considered to be from Lake Street in Upper Saddle River (town) downstream to Hollywood Avenue in Hohokus. This section is about 20+ feet wide. The river access is provided at pretty much every bridge.

Overall, Saddle River is the 5th most popular fly fishing river of all 10 fly fishing spots in New Jersey.
