Description: About Musconetcong River

The "Musky" as it is called by all who know it flows southwest out of Lake Hopatcong. Downstream from Saxton Falls in Allamuchy, the Musky begins to take on a normal freestone flow. It contains seasonal trout water to the town of Changewater. From Changewater to the confluence with the Delaware, the Musky mixes with the limestone ground water, cooling down and becoming a better year round trout river. The area just below Penwell includes the Point Mountain TCA, a popular fishing destination. This river holds stocked brooks, browns and rainbows and some wild browns and wild brook trout. The Musky has 19 known trout production tributaries entering into it.
