The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is reminding anglers that trout season is open and stocking continues through May 25 in waters throughout the state. Early reports indicate a high level of satisfaction as fish are abundant from pre-season and ongoing stocking.
Anglers should note an error in the Freshwater Digest on page 18 in the section headed “Spring Trout Stocked Waters With No In-Season Closures”: the first paragraph should read, “After opening day, these waters may be fished on the day they are stocked.” The existing text incorrectly states that these waters are closed on their designated stocking dates.
Also, in the Fly Fishing Areas section on page 21, the 3rd time frame listed should read: “April 7 at 8 a.m. – April 16 at 5 a.m. No gear restrictions except on Blewett Tract.” The existing text gives an incorrect time frame.
