My original plan today was to fish Echo Lake. Well I slept later than I expected...got a late start (man, those pancakes smelled good)...and didn't get out until 10:15am. As I approached Echo all I could see was cars and trailers. I assumed there may be a late season tournament going on, or everybody was just enjoying the great November weather. I decided to bag Echo Lake and continued through West Milford and went to Green Turtle. It's a nice little lake with some good bass in it. The road down to the lake is a little rough but the launch is pretty good. I fished from 11:00am until 2:30pm and caught 8 bass....all flipping jigs and one on a spinnerbait. One bass was around 3lbs while the rest were in the 1-2lb range. In that time I fished the entire lake and almost the far bank twice. It's a great place to flip a jig since the lake it loaded with wood and overhanging brush. It looked like rain so I decided to pull out and it's a good thing I did. As soon as I started pulling out it started to rain and eventually poured on me while I was driving home. I didn't come prepared with any rain gear. But it was nice to get out for a few hours and catch a few bass in a really fun lake. Take care...Mark

I can't believe the season has just about passed and I haven't been up to Green Turtle this year...

I fished it a bunch last year... mostly in summer skipping Senkos under the trees....

I thinks it's 40 acres........ was never crowded when I was there.

Hey Woody

If you drive up towards Awosting you can see the lake on the right. The road down to the lake is a rough one like you said...so keep it slow. But the ramp is very good and there is a small island right in front of you after you launch. I put my big boat in there with no problem. People tell me they catch smallies by the dam but I never have before. Take Care...Mark
