Re: Spruce Run

I stopped an looked today. Hopefully the current cleans out the pool a little. I also see a large tree stump deflecting water before the wall downstream, what happens when that rots away?

Re: Spruce Run

It looks like the retaining wall is finished, and from what I can see from the road, it has a funny curve to it and the pool is now shallow and filled with sediment. Someone who knows more about this stuff should drive down and take another look. They may have ruined one of the best fishing holes on...

Re: Bent hooks

Dont do it unless fishing for dinks. I tie a lot of flies on dry hooks for versatility. For example soft hackles and iris caddis, two of the flies I fish most of the time can be fished dry or wet, so I have a large amount of experience with bent hooks....the will bend again and eventually break and ...

It went over the Dam but it looks like all is well. BTW it snowed this morning by me as well.
Update, the berm sank a bit in the middle and the area of construction is filled with sediment now...

Re: Spruce Run

Yes, I guess its been awhile. I remember fishing Spruce Run Creek by that since closed down restaurant on route 31 on March 7th of 2009 and caught two 16-18 inch wild browns on in the same pool on a trout magnet. I think I even posted a pic on the last iteration of this site. It was always a bit we...

Re: Spruce Run

I was correct in that it was for the quarry's SEP project, and I swung by yesterday. It's a disaster and the engineer is the same one that screwed the pooch on the Ramapo for one of my competitors when the Borough of Oakland tried to restore sections of that river a few years back. Being a WTS, all...

Re: Spruce Run

There was no NJDEP Land Use permit pulled for Glen Gardner locations. Could it be from another town? It is a long Rte. 31 By Hunt Place. The trailer parked there says RFC? I believe on it. They are building a retaining wall. Take a drive by and a look. I was correct in that it was for the quarry's ...

Re: Spruce Run

OK, so no one on the other board responded, maybe here. Some work is happening to the Creek in Glen Gardner. Who is doing it and I hope it looks better than the start when they are done. Those large abutments are hideous. i doubt I'll hear from Rusty after the thrashing he got on NEFF :shock: , don...

The inet can be very dark place at times. Some folks feel they can say whatever about folks they do not even know. A thick skin is needed to just ignore the ignorant. We have all been ignorant before No one is perfect. The darkness is another thing. Don't talk about peoples families or business. Ju...

Re: Fished the Musky in Hackettstown area

I've been finding plenty of stocked rainbows. A size i6 gold sparkle pupa has been doing very well. Zebra midge also. Make the pupa swim after it reaches the bottom. Most takes were on the swing or slow even retrieve.
