Banner day on Big D

I floated the Delaware up in Milford area today, and may have had my best day ever, certainly from a quality/quantity standpoint. After a real slow start, I finished with 20, but 4 were in high 'teens, on top of my PB NJ-caught smallie, a 20", solid 4 lbr. That was some fight, floating downstream th...

Re: Lamington/NBRR Smallies - biggest seen?

I got out to Duke Island Park fished one evening earlier this week, and got 7 in about an hour, including one 16". Some really pretty fish, one had deep tiger stripes like you see one Midwestern and Canadian fish.

Re: Lamington/NBRR Smallies - biggest seen?

Unfortunately, the Lamington suffers mightily from man's interference, leaving it both a poor trout and smallie fishery. The Kay Dam that Morris County Parks owns is a large contributor to the problem, at least for trout. Further down the Black when it becomes the Lamington, it suffers from current...

Razor, I've found some good smallie water in the Delaware below Carpentersville, NJ. Fish the runs and around the boulders.
I should get down to that area... I usually fish the Matamoras area down to the Water Gap.

Re: Lamington/NBRR Smallies - biggest seen?

I grew up in 2 miles from Pottersville and the water always looked alluring there, but it is transitional water so kind of poor to mediocre for both trout and SMB. Yeah it a a really weird stretch from the Fairmont Rd bridge in the village, downstream past my place, and all the way down to Lamingto...

Lamington/NBRR Smallies - biggest seen?

After numerous attempts of picking onesy-twosy's, I finally found a decent hole on the Lamington yesterday evening where I pulled 8 fish in less than 30 minutes. But as usual, they were all in that 7-10" range, and I am being generous at 10. I know the main stem of the Raritan has some good size sma...

Re: Water Temps

At least where I live, next week's temps look like they're inching back up into the 87-88 range during the day. But some of these cool mornings with low dew points (50s) have been delightful. I also looked at NJ's drought map which says the state is in a green "normal' range. Do normal water levels...

Big D Smallmouth on the fly suggestions?

Last Monday I floated a familiar stretch in the Matamoras and downstream area with my nephew, and as usual killed 'em on the spinning rod. But I didn't bother bringing a fly rod because I have just not been able to break to code for Delaware smallies. Suggestions?

Re: Warren Glen Musky

I have to say, I was a little uneasy walking below the "waterfall" of the little branch the splits off at the big dam and rejoins the main stem a couple hundred yards upstream from the mill foot bridge. I imagine not wanting to linger too long beneath the big dam itself... but I did not make it up t...

Re: Is this your car on the WTS?

LOL... I saw him parked right there the last time I was there a couple three weeks ago. I caught a 20" brown in that hole under the now-gone deadfall tree a few years ago. Maybe 20 years ago or more there was another one similar upstream a ways that always held the biggest, baddest brown in the riv...

If you are in the area and have some free time, it is definitely worth the effort.... not a destination river (or area) though.

Re: Provo River UT

thanks guys. I spent all day on the Middle Provo and picked a few, some with big size. I had a brown about 20" to net twice, he ran both times then the hook pulled as I was getting him to net the 3rd time. Picked a couple small browns, and a big whitefish, easy 4 pounds. The fish of the day tho was ...

nothing overly dramatic, at least in the publicly accessible section. I did catch and release a real nice rainbow on Sunday.

yeah I know :). I was wondering how far down past McCann Mill Rd the restoration occurred.
