NJ Musconetcong, Penwell Dam
Marker Description: The Musconetcong at Penwell Dam is just up from the Point Mountain TCA which ends at the bridge just below the dam. The DF&G tends to stock a lot of brookies in the TCA and they run right up to the dam and they can't go upstream from the dam. So the Penwell dam can be quite a good spot.

No special regulations at the dam. Until the Division starts stocking more rainbows which hold in the TCA, the dam will be loaded with running brookies. Prevent freezer burn and keep em fresh in the water for next time.

Fished yesterday from about five o'clock to dark. It was quite a scene what with the bathers and rope swing crowd above the dam complete with barbecue crews and whatnot. Tow other fishermen below the falls did quite well catching an assortment of trout, sunfish and bass on worms and shiners. I fished trout magnets, pheasant tails, midges and caddis dries with no luck. Had a few strikes but then nothing as the other two guys had constant hook ups. Many trout rising and flopping on the surface. Plenty of trout under the falls.
