NJ Dunnfield Creek
Marker Description: Dunnfield Creek is not trout stocked and is designated by New Jersey as a wild trout stream with artificials only regulations. This is one of the most beautiful creeks in New Jersey which tumbles down the mountain which huge trees on the banks and steep spills to deep cuts and pools.

The Creek runs for approximately 2 1/2 miles down the Kittatinny Ridge, and you can sample the entire stream from a path which eventually links up to the Appalachian Trail in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

The fishing is challenging and the scenery is out of this world. Flies of choice are small gold ribbed hares ear in sizes 14 and 16, prince nymphs size 14, and soft hackles in size 18.

Walked up the trail to Sunfish Pond and hit the best looking pools. Not a strike. Read a report from another fishermen and he said he only had action in the pockets. Probably fished al the wrong places that appeared to be the right ones.

Fished today with a few different nymphs didn't even see anything. Got there a little late and the sun was high and shining. Normally, I see a few darting about but it is earlier and the water was ice cold.

Worked the nice pool for a long while and I didn't see anything. The nice pool is in the photos and the one you can't miss when walking up. Of course there are always hikers on the AT so it is not the most secluded fishing experience but the Creek is beautiful. Surprised I didn't have more luck but I didn't keep hiking up and do the work necessary.
