If you are a fan of fishing of any kind, the Navesink River (also known as the Shrewsbury River) has pretty much everything an angler can ask for. Fishing for any experience level is available in abundance. What is the catch of the day? Striped bass, bluefish, flounder, weakfish, and crabs galore are just a few of the local favorites. Blue crabs are the most plentiful and the trick is to catch a fish before these sneaky crabs eat the bait right off your hook!

Play at the park

Rumson has several incredibly beautiful parks that have the resident’s favor. Riverside Park is one of Rumson’s busiest, as it boasts 2 full-size baseball fields which are also used as soccer fields during the fall. Located along the Navesink River makes it appealing for all ages. Victory Park is also located along the waterfront and has many sporting areas for play. Kids also love “Teddy’s Playground,” a park lovingly donated to the community by a family in memory of their sweet toddler.
