Re: Paulins Kill - Are There Fish in This Section?

Can't speak to if there's any good fishing in that section cause I'm not familiar with it but by looking at tax maps, it looks like just about all of that stretch is fishable from one side or the other. Most of the northern bank is owned by NJ DEP land and some of the southern bank but there is som...

Re: Gotta return hone today

I like that stretch too. I recently found the approach from the other side. There's one marked pull off and another pull off closer to the game lands that I think is ok to use too.

The article doesn't mention penwell. Did that get hit with a swim flash mob?

Re: WMA closings

The one near Jaws with the limited selection makes great egg sandwiches. My hunting club house is in East Branch and i have relied on them for sustenance. Beaver kill campground restaurant down the road has fantastic burgers.

Re: WMA closings

Sarcasm is hard to express. Wrong emoji perhaps. I'm all for closing water when it will help fish.

That's why there's no fly fishing in Montana, right? 🤔

Re: WMA closings

I agree. I stop before the end of June. I was expressing my exasperation at seeing cars and fishermen this time of year in the musky. Saw several today at the pt. Mnt. TCA.

Re: WMA closings

KLG is on the list. I was only using the M as an example. A few weeks with fewer people can only help any water.

What does restricted access mean, anyway?

Re: WMA closings

I am ok with this for two reasons.

Re: West Canada Creek

Where in the Valley? I spent 4 years up there (95 - 99) and still have friends around Utica. I should have fished more while there, but damn those winters are rough!

Re: Big D spot burning

Headed back this morning and hit the WMA right above phillipsburg. Nice looking water, a bit of structure, and two fishing chasing something on the surface. I didn't catch anything but will head back, probably early tomorrow.
