Default North Branch Park Bridgewater

Has anyone fished here for trout ? Recently moved to Bridgewater did some scouting yesterday. Looks very shallow. Does anyone have any tips or recommendations ?

The stretch that runs through the park itself is pretty flat and shallow. There are some nice deep holes upstream and downstream. Try taking a walk downstream to the dam by the Route 202 bridge, that spot is usually loaded with trout.

Upstream by the railroad bridge or down stream by 202 like Lard said.

I never caught a damn thing by that railroad bridge, I think it gets hit pretty hard.

Actually have done pretty well by the railroad bridge on both bass and trout.
The area behind the 4H field is very shallow.

I took my son to the fair grounds late spring last year, landed a few stockies and he's been begging to go back ever since. We couldn't make it out Saturday so we went yesterday morning around 10:30. Long story short we were skunked. He got cold quickly so that lead to impatience. So we got lunch and headed upstream to the confluence with the Lamington. I got 1 'bow. He got nothing. Surprisingly he wasn't too bummed about that and said he was happy just to be on the water with me.

The North branch should be getting a heap load in the coming weeks.

I concur, it’s deep and looks promising but Only thing I ever caught at railroad bridge was a warning from a ranger for drinking a beer while I fished....
