alright guys, the entity of Freshy Jackson has only existed for a year, so I'm still trying to understand the Sciences of the Salt-less Waters.
The Delaware River ,in New York, predatory game fish here would be: Muskies, Smallmouth and Largemouth Bass, Channel Cats, Walleye, Northern Pike, Bowfin, Bullhead and Pickerel, that might be it.
Aside from the Black Basses, I don't like the idea of catching these other game fish in non-native waters too much. Muskies, Cats, Pike, Walleye, Bowfin, Smallmouth & Largemouth Bass are not native to this watershed.
So if you went back in time a few hundred years, were Rivers like this just extremely lame, with Chain Pickerel, Bullheads, migrating Shad and White Sucker being the only fish with any size in this whole river? Or am I missing something?
