Englewood, N.J. Palisades Interstate Park. Take Route 9W or the Palisades Interstate Parkway to Exit One, Palisades Avenue, in Englewood. Take Palisades Avenue east till your hat floats and you’re there. Parking is $4.00. The park is open from sun up to sun down. Stripers, Bluefish, Catfish, perch, Tommy cod, and Eels. Don’t throw away those eels! Keep them on the hook. Stripers love eels!! North end of park has a small beach and fishing pier.

Fishing right in front of your car is handy for those colder days. This is also an excellent area for the physically challenged to enjoy the sport of fishing.

Many HRFA members like the northern most spot of the southern parking lot. (Next to the fence, by the marina.) Coin operated bait machines are available at the south end of the parking lot. Entire length of shoreline trail is open for fishing. Bring the kids!

Open all year but they charge for parking from April to November. School sized striped bass (14 - 20 inches) can be caught here all year long. Catfish start showing up in early spring with white perch and Tommy cod. Stripers for the spring spawning run start showing up in good numbers in mid April.

The fall of 2001 had many big stripers landed form this location.  In October of 2001 I had personally seen a 42 inch striped bass brought in off the north corner of the southern parking lot.  The fish was caught on a half of a sandworm.
The north end of park has a small beach and fishing pier, with good access to deeper water.  The trails along the entire park are open for exploring.

This is a great place for the family to have a picnic while you fish.
