JACKSON TOWNSHIP, NJ – The State of New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has stocked the states lakes and rivers with over 21,100 trout, starting last week.

During the 2021 fall trout stocking season, two-year-old trout averaging about 14″ – 16″ in length, along with some three-year-old broodstock will be stocked in several rivers, ponds, streams and lakes throughout New Jersey.

The Division of Fish and Wildlife will put approximately 21,000 trout in the state’s major trout waters. The fish are stocked from the Pequest Trout Hatchery and stocking concludes October 20.

All fall-stocked waters may be fished as soon as they are stocked. Waterbodies stocked will be posted in our Facebook and Instagram stories and on our website after stocking is completed each day.
