Fall 2002 Trout Stocking Schedule


The following is the trout stocking schedule for Fall 2002. Fish being stocked during Weeks 1 & 2 are rainbow trout, approximately 9-11 inches and weighing up to pound each.

The distribution of broodstock will depend on the timing and success of the spawning operation. These fish will not be stocked until the hatchery has met its annual egg requirements. Pending the availability of these fish, South Jersey impoundments will receive excess breeders in Week 2. The remainder of the allotment will be stocked Week 3 in North Jersey along with the surplus production fish.

For updates check the Trout Stocking Hotline at 609-633-6765.

NOTE: There are no closed waters during the fall stocking, but all other regulations are in effect. Consult the DIGEST for information.
