Migrating fish will get more miles for spawning in the Raritan River watershed this week. The Weston Mill Dam removal on the Millstone River between Manville and Franklin Township will open 4.5 miles of the Millstone for shad, herring, eels and striped bass to go from the sea to the river. The dam removal is scheduled to start Monday, Aug. 14. Raritan River dams already were removed in Raritan Borough and Bridgewater and opened the way for anadromous fish all the way to the Headgates Dam.
This summer has been good news, bad news time for anglers. So far, the weather has been unusual with rain in the usual dry months: Good for trout in brooks and streams and water supply, bad for anglers chased by rainstorms, bad for the supply of bait. August and July are usually when reservoirs water levels drop, but Spruce Run Reservoir's water levels are going up, from below 50 percent in the spring to 94 percent now. Fall is usually dry.
We have football camps, baseball camps, basketball camps, tennis camps to teach kids sports. But what can nonfishing parents do when their kids want to learn to fish? They can now send their kids to fishing camp. Garrett Kazar, 23, of Andover Hunt & Fish came up with the idea. He started a three-day fishing camp from 8 a.m.-noon for ages 8-16, and will continue the camp in August.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
