Stopped back at the 519 bridge and they have cleared the log jam with heavy machinery and the fall stockies have scattered. Good news for the next month of fishing upstream. There were a few small trout holding in the depression where the log jam was but that was about it.

I checked out the pool under 519 and saw a number of large fall stockies - on nice rainbow over 20. I tried trout magnets, spinners and jigs. No luck. Met a father and son that said they caught two 18 inch trout in the morning on worms but had no luck for the rest of the day. They also said they talked to a friend that was having good luck on the upper Musconetcong.

All in all the fish are just not hitting on anything but a few fish can be caught. See my nice brookie from downstream caught yesterday at the next marker down.

I caught this nice brookie the other day. I fished in this area at the bridge and walked up behind the police buildings. I had some other bites on worms. Some other fishermen were catching trout on spinners.

Caught two brookies on Panther Martin No. 6 under the bridge. Many fisherman were catching fish. A nice 16" brookie was taken on a worm under the jam.

(2010 DLN 37 trout)
