Musky Up and Running

To sign up for the Musconetcong Watershed Association sponsored river trips and indoor class that I will be teaching this Saturday visit the MWA Website.

Finally, the release from Lake Hopatcong has begun (a few days ago) and we got a close up look at it yesterday during the Musconetcong Watershed Association's Annual Wine Tasting, which was held at the Musky Hatchery. Yes the wine was flowing nicely as well as the river.

It was a great time to catch up with folks from the river valley, many of whom worked with me on the Wild and Scenic Study and several other projects.

I was introduced to the guy who hired by the Warren Rod & Gun Club to remove all the fish weirs from that stretch of the river. A lot of seasoned paddlers of the Musky will be surprised to see these singular features missing from the river, unless of course they read this blog post.

I've mentioned this topic a few times and will do it one more time:
