  1. Hey all - just wanted to reach out again and bring attention to The Lodge at River Valley (www.thelodgeatrivervalley.com). We are still accepting a few more memberships this year. Please visit the Lodge website to learn more and see photos. Drop me an email at [email protected] if you are interested in joining. Fishing has been on fire lately!
  2. Hey all, It's almost that time of year! I am the head guide for the Lodge at River Valley, a members only fly fishing club situated along 2 miles of the Musconetcong River in Asbury, New Jersey. Last year we launched a limited hunting membership for 6 members and we have 3 spaces still available for this year. We are looking for a 3 bow only members to join for deer season, keeping our maximum at 6. Members will have access to overnight accommodation (at a rate of $65/man), as well as free range on over 240 acres of farm and woodlands that are prime deer habitat. Full kitchen is available for use. The herd at River Valley is about 45-60, with 6-8 unique bucks. The entire property is managed for regenerative farming and wildlife, which has a halo effect of positive stewardship to the deer population. We are located in Zone 7, known for it's large population of trophy bucks. The Lodge is home to 2009's trophy buck of the year. Taken by shotgun, it is the 4th largest buck ever taken in New Jersey (NJ Deer Hunting Records). Pictures attached. The genetics of this large buck are still very much influencing the current herd. Membership starts at $1700 per person for the season, up to 6 members. Also included with membership are dining privileges at Hawk Pointe, a course just down the road from the lodge. Please send me a message or reply to this thread if you are interested or would like some more information. Check out the Lodge website for pictures of the property. Cheers Alex Ford
  3. Hey all, I've posted in here before but wanted to announce some news about membership at the Lodge at River Valley (www.thelodgeatrivervalley.com). We have two miles of private water on the Musconetcong and a member's lodge with locker rooms and 3 guest rooms, capable of sleeping up to 10. Fishing is truly excellent, with 9 defined pools and tons of riffles and pocket water to fish between them. We mainly catch browns and rainbows, but there are some brookies and a few tiger trout in there as well! We have a self-imposed limit of 20 members to keep fishing pressure light. We are only looking to add 5 more members this year. We just dropped the initiation fee for new members for a trial year, so the cost of membership is now $5,000 a year with unlimited access and guest passes. You also get dining privileges and preferred rates at Hawk Pointe, the golf course down the road. I went out last Monday and had 4 fish in an hour! I'm happy to jump on the phone any time to answer any questions you might have. If anyone interested, I'd like to get you up for maybe a half day of fishing and a chance to tour the property. Any day above 40 degrees should provide some very active fish! Shoot me an email at [email protected] for details. Cheers & tight lines Alex
  4. I work at the Lodge at River Valley on the Musconetcong in Asbury. Had 4 fish in an hour last week! Let me know if you'd like to come up and fish it. www.thelodgeatrivervalley.com Cheers
  5. No we are in Asbury off the Asbury West Portal road, just downstream from the graphite mill.
  6. Greetings all, I am the head guide at the Lodge at River Valley. We are currently looking for up to 5 individuals to join as trial members for the fall fishing season, September 15 - December 15. Our piece of the Musconetcong is just shy of two miles, and has an extremely high rate of holdover fish. With our absolute cap of 20 members, you will often be the only person on the whole stretch. We do stock it, but with an aim to keep fish around for a long time and to keep up with a family of bald eagles! We are 100% fly fishing only / catch & release. The trial membership will run from September 15 - December 15, spanning ideal fall fishing conditions on the Musconetcong which means lots of aggressive streamer takes and colored up brookies, browns, and rainbows. The total cost will be $1700 for four months of pristine trout fishing on one of the New Jersey's most beautiful and undeveloped stretches of river, only an hour from downtown Manhattan. More information and pictures are available at www.thelodgeatrivervalley.com. If you are interested in joining for 2018, annual membership dues at the Lodge are $5700, with a $12,000 initiation which can be paid over the course of 3 years. Most of that goes towards maintenance of the club and the river, but we are also in the process of building a sporting clays course on the Lodge grounds. We currently host 4 clay shoots a year at the Lodge, and we will be hosting our first wing shoot this fall. Bow hunting memberships are also available for the season. There are no guest fees at the Lodge, and you are free to stay overnight in one of the lodge's 3 rooms with a small cleaning charge. Also included with membership are golf and dining privileges at Hawk Pointe, a course just down the road from the lodge. Please contact me at [email protected] if you are interested and we will find a day for you to come out for a guided day of fishing.

  7. No one will have access to hunting except for the 6 members. The lodge will remain open to the current fishing members but I don't anticipate high traffic in the colder months. Shoot me an email at [email protected] and we can talk there.
  8. Hey 1957Buck - are you asking if members can bring guests to hunt with them? We would probably put in a limited number of guest passes for the season, family excluded. Something to discuss though for sure. The Lodge would be open at all times to the members. When you join you also get a key.
