Not sure, but the old club broke up a few years ago already.

Not much decent water in there due to the upstream farmer farming way too close to the river and losing massive amounts of banks into the stream every year. That and it backs up whenever the Delaware floods since the club was on the last two properties on that river above where it enters the Delaware. The habitat is smothered in most places with sediment from the eroding, 6' tall vertical banks.

Took a ride down there today. Signage says Oak Ridge Rod and Gun Club? Don't think I've ever heard of them before.
