Winter 2013 Trout Stocking Schedule

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife will again be stocking "super-size" trout as part of the Winter Trout Stocking Program. Beginning Monday, November 25, 2013, more than 5,000 large trout will be stocked in 23 lakes throughout the state.

These 14-inch to 18-inch rainbow trout will come on the heels of the 20,000 two-year old beauties stocked in October. With an extra seven weeks to grow, the average size of these fish will be even bigger!

The winter stocking is the final one each year, bringing the total of trout stocked from the Pequest State Trout Hatchery in Warren County to approximately 650,000 in all.
