Fall Trout Stocking Complete, More to Come in November


October 30, 2015

The return of larger, 2-year old trout for the annual fall trout stocking was welcomed by anglers who enjoyed being outdoors amid the colorful fall foliage.

Nearly 21,000 Rainbow Trout averaging 14.6" were stocked in 16 streams and 15 ponds across the state over a two-week period. In addition to those fish, 745 breeders averaging 21.1", awaited anglers like Bob Joiner, right, whose fishing buddy Paul Zrinko snapped the photo of Bob with a beautiful South Branch rainbow.

More trout will be stocked just prior to Thanksgiving thanks to the NJDEP's Division of Fish and Wildlife's Winter Trout Stocking Program. On November 23 and 24 approximately 5,000 two-year old Rainbow Trout, averaging 14-18 inches, will be stocked in 24 designated ponds and lakes throughout the state, providing more excitement for the holiday weekend and into the spring.

For a summary of the Fall Trout Stocking see the 2015 Pequest Stocking Summaries; for information on the upcoming Winter Trout Stocking Program visit the Winter Trout Fishing In New Jersey page.

Additional information on trout fishing opportunities courtesy of the Division's trout stocking programs is available at on the Division's site.
