Is today's banner from the upper Mongaup Creek in NYS near the conservation camp?

No, but good guess! There are some pics somewhere on this site from that stretch of Mongaup, I think. I've got lots of bugs from there. (When I fished it, I didn't catch anything... maybe 1 small brookie.)

Today's header is from the nearby West Fork of the Neversink.

Also, here's a link to the one we're talking about, since it will change tomorrow and leave everybody confused:

The upper Mongaup near the conservation camp used to have plentiful wild browns in the 9" - 12" class. Then in late September and into October if you went right where the damn is almost across the street from the camp pond you might see twenty plus large browns milling around staging for their spawning event. Many would be in a 18" - 24" range. However the season closes September 30 so all you could do was look and drool.

It is in the upper Mongaup where I once saw a male brookie courting a female brown on a redd.
