Haven't fished the Passaic much, but that sure looks like good water.

For the first time ever, I geared up and set out to fish for an hour or so before work. I was excited and had high hopes for such a great Fall morning. Sadly, until the very last cast, I had seen absolutely no signs of life in the water (a fair amount of white tail passed me by, however). And even that last cast when I managed to hook, what looked like a small sunny, I wasn't able to convert it into a landed fish - it jumped off just as it broke the water.

The area looked to have promise and the first 100-150 yards or so did produce some nice slow moving pools with trees stretched out low over the water as well as several fallen trees lying in the water creating some nice hiding spots. However, as I worked further away from the bridge into the park the amount of debri in the water increased to the point that I wasn't able to take advantage of the hiding spots without getting snagged. Fortunately I only lost one lure for the short time I was there.
