Headwaters Passaic R -Jockey Hollow NHP and the Audubon societys Scherman Hoffman Sanctuary

I have not been back in there for a long time (5 years?),
Is in there still an opportunity to chase some wild brookies, or perhaps even an wild brown? Anyone have any current info?
Many thanks!

The Wiener Place was closed yesterday, no one there to ask the question.

Another Access Question

Anybody know?
Is there still public fishing access to the Musky behind the former Cassia Grill Restaurant (now Willie's Wieners) on US 57?

Brett's thoghts from Rangeley Sport Shop

It most applies just as well to New Jersey! "On my walk in the woods today I stopped for a moment and rested from the concerns of the week.

Re: I Need Some New Waders

I have used the Redington Sonic Pro for 4 years. No complaints, had gotten them back then from Shannon's.
Great zip-up waders, and a good value. Highly Recommended. They come in a good selection of sizes. Pocket's are good as well.

Re: Looking for Help

That's exactly what happened to me, except, I had cought bottom and had to break-off, and never bothered to re-tie, and made it into the end of the day for me.
Not a good way to justify to buy a new rod.

Learning the hard way!

Looking for Help

A few days ago I lost the two top sections of my 9ft fly rod (green) at the Flatbrook, along the path between the Three Bridges Parking area anddown stream to the large pool before getting to the Rifle Range.
If any one happened to spot it, would you mind calling 973-222-4559 ? Thanks much.
