Due to predicted winter storm, the forum has been rescheduled to Saturday, January 31, at 10:00 a.m.

A public forum to discuss freshwater fisheries research, management and recreational angling in New Jersey, originally scheduled for January 24, has been rescheduled to Saturday, January 31, due to predicted winter storm weather. The forum will be held at the Hackettstown State Fish Hatchery in Warren County. The forum will begin at 10:00 a.m.

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife holds forums to improve communication with the angling public and to solicit public input in shaping freshwater fisheries programs in the future. The forums are a perfect opportunity for all freshwater anglers to learn about existing programs and to share their views and recommendations.

Topics cover all aspects of freshwater management, including both warmwater and coldwater fisheries. This year two talks will be presented highlighting recent field sampling efforts including Lake Hopatcong Fisheries Inventory, Stream Temperature Monitoring, and Coolwater Species assessment (Muskellunge, Northern Pike, and Walleye) as well as a summary of ongoing management efforts.

The Hackettstown State Fish Hatchery also had one of their best years of fish production and a summary of warmwater/coolwater species stocked in 2014 will be provided to attendees.

As always, there will be ample time for open discussion with professional staff to answer any questions or address concerns of anglers during the extended question and answer period.

Pre-registration is not required but is appreciated, and will help ensure that all attendees can be accommodated. Individuals can pre-register by calling 908-236-2118 or by sending an e-mail to Be sure to include name, address, phone number and the number of people attending.

Come and be an integral part in the development of future programs and regulations related to New Jersey's freshwater fisheries resources.
