NJ Stocking Super-sized Trout for Awesome Autumn Angling

September 29, 2009

Itís been an exceptional year for trout fishing in New Jersey, but the best is yet to come.

Beginning Oct. 6, more than 21,000 super-sized trout will be stocked in streams and lakes from Sussex County to Atlantic County. Those big fish, ideal water conditions, great weather and spectacular scenery combine to make autumn what many anglers agree is New Jersey's premier trout fishing season.

For the fourth consecutive year, New Jersey will release statewide brook trout, brown trout and rainbow trout that each measure 14 inches to 24 inches and weigh one and a half pounds to eight pounds. Any of these fabulous fish could very well be an angler's once-in-a-lifetime catch.

Don't miss out. Get on the water and get in on the finest trout fishing action in the tri-state area. If you haven't gone trout fishing yet this year, simply buy and print your fishing license and trout stamp online at Itís that easy.

Thereís no better way to spend your time and money this fall than trout fishing in New Jersey.
