Re: Lower Wanaque Damaged Severely

The only way to protect our waters from harmful activity is through citizen action. Don't count on state or local oversight and enforcement without public pressure. I am learning from experience with Green Brook in Watchung.

What are the trash bags for?

What are your favorite flies and techniques for freshly stocked fall trout? Buggers, eggs, mops, streamers? Size? Colors? Retrieve?
