Fishing in Mahwah?


Recommended Posts

Sup guys, gotta head up to Mahwah for the weekend. Anyone know of places around there with public fishing access? Been looking around on Google maps and everything I can see seems to be either private or surrounded by private property. Trying to target anything freshwater that’s not a trout. Don’t wanna burn anyone’s spots so pm me if you’re willing to pass a lead, thanks!

You can fish the Ramapo off of Halifax Rd, the Resevation and Glen Grey Rd all off rt 202. They are all for trout but the Reservation has a lake at the bottom of the mountain and at the top. I’ve never fished the top lake.

Lake tamarack off skyline drive has decent bank fishing. Bass/pickerel. Potash lake as mentioned before. Sucks for bank but good for boat/kayak. Also the wanaque river just past the falls in Pompton lakes. All kinds of goodies in there. Smallmouth, pike…

A little far from Mahwah.lolLake tamarack, as in what used to be the boy scout camp tamarack?

That's open to the public now?

I used to be a scoutmaster and a campmaster there. Never fished ice out,the boys had a blast ice fishing though. Pickerel and yellow perch on shiners. More of a large pond than a lake, 3-4 acres, half hour walk from skyline drive unless you have four wheel drive.

Not far from mahwah at all. One town over. Yup same “lake”. It’s one of the few lakes that have good shore access to decent spots. If not the Halden reservoir on the border of Halden and Franklin lake has some very nice size bass in it with easy access.
