Marker Description: IF PRIVATELY SIGNED DO NOT TRESPASS. Polkville road area is private. Delawanna Creek has been designated by New Jersey as trout production water. The creek is relatively slow moving in this section and expands into a swampy area not far off the road. Closer to Shotwell Road, the banks firm up.

Overall swampy mess and the stream has large foam pods, is shallow and blackish water, no good vegetation, not worth looking into but I really only accessed the water that comes from the pond to the right.

*****Polkville Road is private property.

I'm Dave Norris. I moved the marker. I walked the intial location at property that was for sale along Polkville and I was interested because of the trout stream designation. I wasn't impressed by the water quality. Anyway, when I was there I saw no private property signage. Fishing can get mixed up with trespassing at times but in my opinion nobody owns a stream, maybe it's the native american in me. All water is held in the public trust per NJ Constitution but we have no stream access law in NJ so ... I moved the marker and put the caveat in the marker description. OREO thanks for your post.
