NJ Delaware River, Pohat Creek
Marker Description: The Delaware River across from the Pohatcong Creek from the island side is the spot to catch the big boy Striped Bass, there is a deep ass channel and the monsters hang right here. Sometimes you'll see a bunch of clowns lined up in this spot so its not like I'm giving it all away to you fools. You can wade in at the top of the island from the PA side, no way to get there on foot from the Jersey side without swimming. If you make the trip you will thank the Powers, even Stevie catches them here. Thank me later bitches.

Walked along the tracks per the tip from Kenny Powers and fished the clearer water from the Pohat as it came into the Big D. I caught a small trout but wasn't having much action until I hooked and landed this beauty of a rainbow. Looks to be a fish that lives in the Delaware and comes into the Pohatcong when the River turns to mud. But who knows. Fish released to fight another day. Great fight!

Parked along the railroad tracks on the Jersey side to give the junction a try for trout. There is an excellent well beaten deer trail that makes a very easy walk along the ridgeline of the drop off to the Delware straight to the junction pool from the railroad tracks. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy the walk was. There was a shad boat in the bubble line. I fished rapalas and spinners with no luck. I hooked a small nicely colored rainbow on a size 14 pheasant tail but lost it at my feet. Otherwise nothing. A classic Big D experience where it looks great and see almost nothing by way of fish.
