NJ Trout Art Contest Winners Honored

April 11, 2013

The winning entrants in the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife's NJ Trout Art Contest were honored at the Pequest Trout Hatchery and Natural Resource Education Center in Oxford, Warren County, on the opening day of trout season, April 6.

Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin was on hand to meet contest winners and their families, as they enjoyed a morning of fishing at the Pequest Fishing Education Pond. The weather was beautiful and sunny and everyone had a great time catching trout. Fish and Wildlife staff and volunteers assisted anglers to ensure they had a safe and enjoyable fishing experience.

After fishing, the winners of the contest received certificates and fishing equipment at an awards ceremony held at the pond and followed by a luncheon in the main building, both sponsored by the New Jersey Council of Trout Unlimited. Commissioner Martin spoke at the awards ceremony praising the winners for their excellent artwork.

After the luncheon, winners had the opportunity to take a personal tour of the Pequest Hatchery and learn how brook, brown and rainbow trout are raised for stocking in New Jersey’s publicly accessible waterways.

The purpose of this annual contest is to encourage children in grades K through 12 to learn about New Jersey's trout species.
