Re: Another Access Question

I lived across the street from there for 10 years. It's a good stretch and at times an unbelievable spot for hatches. There were off years too. The landscape has changed literally as well. I have not fished it for two years from over use and moving, but I still recommend the fishing there.

Re: Access question

Thanks Rusty. That's what I always thought. I posted the signs along part of the musky and got into a conversation with a guy about it. Just wanted to be clear (and right) ;) "No. In NJ, the landowners own the bottom of the river's bed, so you cannot trespass. It is not the same as wading the West B...

Re: Access question

Thanks all but I mean the river. Wading from one stocked bridge down through and to, without stepping on dry ground, the the bridge below. The musky is what I'm thinking of. Below Pt mnt TCA are several bridges with stretches that go through private property. Conceivably one could wade down to Narni...

Access question

I am sure this has been discussed before, so forgive me if this has been covered. Here is the hypothetical: I am fishing between two bridges, lets say a quarter mile apart. Each bridge is posted as stocked water. Is the whole stretch wadeable between the bridges? If yellow Posted signs are along the...

Good hatch and rising trout

Bounced around a bit today and after seeing good numbers of stones in the water and the air, I finally found rising fish. The took a quill, but I'm almost certain he thought it was a stone fly.

Re: Blue Quill

Yes, big. I am not great at identifying sizes, or flies really, but I'm tying some up now 14 - 12. Sunday looks warm so maybe they'll start looking up.

Re: Shad Fishing

I second Justin's question. Been meaning to give shad a try, but have never made it out.

Blue Quill

Saw a few BIG blue quill flying around among the stone flies yesterday afternoon on the musky. The fish were still keen on the LBS. I lost one after it threw the fly, only to catch it on the next cast in the same spot. No rising fish yet, but great afternoon to be out.

Re: The Patch by John McPhee--a short story about fishing and a father

Nice story. McPhee would be great to meet on a stream. I read his book on shad and the Delaware. I highly recommend it, especially now the shad are coming back. This make me eager to got on a lake!

Both the musky and SB have been busy this week. I've been out a few time and finally got to see a palomino up close.

Re: Anyone fish pa recently? The brodhead is super low.

Got out today after looking for a new pattern to tie last night. I found the renegade which is, apparently, Hemingway's favorite.

Re: Wader recomendations

Cabellas neoprene waders. So far, indestructible. I have all my old, holely waders for when its warm, but also got tired of patching and replacing them. I fish a ton and a single pricker can ruin a 200 dollar pair of the non neoprene type. Too many pricker bushes and other thorny plants to keep up w...

Re: Trout to Smallmouth transition

Still trout in the musky above point mountain; keep going up river and hit the lakes around hackettstown. Clinton/ below 78 is good on the Sbr. The posted spots in the digest is a good place to start or Google maps satellite mode works for me too.
