Fished after lunch and saw a few guys catching trout below the dam. I brought out my fly rod and had no luck on prince with green bead dropper size 14. A guy started socking them using a hares ear of one of the bridge stantions and I was tired and left without catching anything.

Fall stocking today on the Pequest. I was a trout spectator event. The water was clear and had minimal leaves.

It didn't look like they put as many fish in as they normally do and not as many mega lunkers. Biggest fish I saw was about twenty and most about 16 or so. Saw about twenty fish above the dam. Above the dam the fish had no interest in anything thrown about - lures, jigs, flies, worms, shiners. One guy caught a nice fish from below the dam on a worm. Check out me pics yo!

Fished this morning with nymphs and had no luck. There was one other guy fishing off the dam, he had no luck either.

Fished here for opening day for a few minutes, the water was muddy and high and not much action - I caught nothing. Pequest is going to be solid once the water clears up. 2010 DLN 35 trout
