NJ Pequannock River Lower Rte 23
Marker Description: Fish up or downstream - this is the former Trout Conservation Area which was moved due to a lack of parking. I grew up in High Crest Lake and walked or rode my bike to this river with my fly rod in a tube back in the day. Tons of wild browns.

Wading is like walking on greased bowling balls, so be safe. In the "good old days" the police used to let cars simply park along the highway on the south side and fish, but those days are long over. Generant, the business upstream of the bridge, allows fishing but not parking. All good water through that area.
