2018 Spring Trout Allocations and
In-Season Stocking Days

 

The alphabetical listing of trout-stocked waters showing stocking dates and numbers of fish to be stocked provides quick reference for each waterbody's weekly spring trout allocation. For the seven week in-season period, the day of the week that stocking is scheduled is also provided.

This schedule is subject to change; any deviations will be noted in the Stocking Updates section of the 2018 Trout Stocking Schedule Page and on the 24-hour Trout Stocking Hotline (609-633-6765).

Anglers should consult the 2018 NJ Freshwater Fishing Digest, pages 18 - 23, for a complete description of all trout fishing regulations, including special regulations and in-season stocking closures that may apply to individual trout-stocked waters. Beginning in 2015 and continuing until further notice, all trout stocked are Rainbow Trout only.
