After looking at the map, the Pequest River upstream from the Alphano Bridge heads away from any roads until it crosses under Route 80. It looks to be the longest section without easy access from Route 46 or elsewhere.

I spoke to a fisherman from Great Meadows and he told me that Bear Creek meets the Pequest in this section and that Bear Creek is a native trout stream. I'm wondering if anyone has fished this stretch?

I'm thinking of making a trip. Maybe it should be floated. If you have any tips, I'd like to know. Thanks.

Three other fishermen had stringers full, lots of fish left in the water. Lots of follows fishing with Panther Martin.

Fished today with my boyfriend - with spinners. Caught two.

The fish were hanging under the bridge. We got there at about 7:00 p.m., other fishermen told us they had caught many in the first two hours. There is a very nice pool right below the bridge. It looked to be very deep but the water was a bit murky so the depth couldn't be determined. There is also an extended slow pool above the bridge that bends up to another railroad bridge. We had multiple follows under and around the bridge, that is also where we caught the fish.
