Re: Bass in Pt Mnt and mayflies in PA

There is a nice one in the Gorge Hanging around the big rock in the Aquarium pool. Some of the biggest I've seen in NJ trout waters has been in the hamlet of Finesville on the lower Musky. If folks know where that nasty bamboo (which may have been finally dealt with?) was. That stretch seems to hol...

Re: Pt. Mountain parking obstruction (old homestead below Penwell).

Someone got it. I got in this afternoon. Not much happening bug wise. If I'm to be super critical, the cut job still requires some maneuvering to get by. Good and let's hope the state clears the rest when they find time to swing by. That is the better parking IMO for the TCA. And if it's crowded do...

I got a confirmation back that it is on their to-do list but could take some time to get to given current priorities.

Roy - I reached out to the Division's northern Lands Management team about the fallen tree as that is state land.

Re: Stream Conditions Today

Anyone pass the Musky, FB or SB this morning? Just wondering if they are up and chocolate, guessing they peaked by now. Was hoping to get out on the Musky tomorrow morning. If not looking good, will stick to wild head waters. The river looked exceptionally in good shape today. It is not off color o...

Re: Stream Conditions Today

I fished Pt. Mnt. this morning - 5:15- 6. It was off, but fish were rising and chasing wooly buggers (black). I was down at the lower end. Usually I park closer to Penwell but the turn-off parking lot (the old homestead one) is blocked by a fallen tree from the other night. Does anyone (Rusty) know...

Re: Bugs.

What does the musky lack in regards to in stream spawning. How can it be increased and have you documented any in the areas you restored. One of life's great mysteries is why some rivers see mainstem spawning and others see nearly all spawning in the tributaries. The Musky continues to be listed as...

Re: Bugs.

Those look wild, are they out of pt mountain. Those are the same wild brown, and I was asking myself that same question. We do have some from a couple nearby tribs that contribute a few wild browns to Point Mountain. How are the summer temps at pt mountain? If i remember isn't there some limestone ...

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

It will also be better for spawning purposes, assuming that trout spawn in the SBR. Do we know if trout make redds in the SBR itself, or in tribs that feed in? Definitely right in the SBR, ive seen hundreds of redds over the years!! Agreed. I see lots of spawning redds in that river above the Gorge...

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

All the rain we've gotten in the last 9 months or so has really helped that stretch out. I was just talking to my two business partners about how the SBR is getting rid of so much accumulated fine sediment over the last year plus now. It will be great for future hatches! The woods all along that ri...

Re: Anyone Been Up to the Catskills?

WBD is down to 750 cfs which is very wadeable for that river, and it continues to fall. The B-kill is 372 cfs at Cooks Falls, so more or less average flow for today. But more rain is in the forecast and the reservoirs are so near capacity that any new rain has nowhere to go again but over the dams a...

I think the bridge is called Gronsky's bridge .where's Jeff k when we need him?
It is. It's just that some people will think of the ice cream place and others the Claremont. Same river, ame name but miles apart is all.

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

I'm getting confused as well. Is there another Gronsky's aside from the one in High Bridge? Yes, different Gronsky's. I believe the family lives near the Claremont stretch. Not sure if same family as the ice cream place/diner or not. But different location and at the end of the old TCA which is no ...

Re: Report: Clairmont Stretch 25 May, 2019

I fished from the rope swing up to Gronskys on Saturday evening. On the water at 17:40, off at 19:50. There was a number of flies in the air and on the water, caddis and a dark yellow may fly (probably a sulphur). I tricked 8 fish and took 3 to hand. The fish were feeding on the surface. I took one...

Re: Claremont Bows

I fished the upper section, right below Budd Lake in the reserve. I did not see many good holes that brookies could hide in. Just when it starts to open it, there are Posted Signs. I turned back. Next, I drove down to where the "Wild Trout" section and caught fish right by that bridge. As I venture...

Re: Claremont Bows

Does that mean that the river above Long Valley is open everyday, all year? Yes Roy. I live there and have been waiting a bit before I know the browns will grow larger once the creel fillers realize that section of the SBR is no longer stocked. This is year 2 of no stocking and I'm just this spring...

Re: Bugs.

Bug porn, I love it!

With flows dropping on local rivers, expect to see more rising trout in coming days to sulphurs. I haven't fished much locally this spring since around the opening day myself. I will get out later this evening though.

Re: lost rod/reel

Ugh. Sorry, but that's not likely to show up anytime soon if I had to guess. But try calling Shannon's to see if anyone turned it in. It's worth the call.
