yea i heard up by the gap is good. just did know if its really worth trying down by me (trenton area). the river is about 15 min away. i know the only way to truly find out is to get out there, but i figured i would ask anyway

Up rt 97 where the lackawaxan dumps into delaware good spot you fish the ny side its deeper
That is the spot. I think the Walleyes are spotty at best in the gap and areas around it. I used to fish that area alot. We would catch them certain times of the year in the paulinskill just up stream near the columbia dam right were it comes out into the delaware. Dingmans ferry and North is best.

My neighbor used to slow troll for them using a worm spinner rig with a big night crawler, he used to do pretty good, somewhere around Easton.

Have caught a few of our discharge chute in Portland, but have never really targeted them. Smallies like crazy though, and some big ones.

There is a lot of water that goes unfished in the Delaware and you can catch walleyes in a lot of it. The river from Carpentersville up to the Goat Farm can really produce in the early spring.
