Mid May Dragon flies crawling out of their Larval stage on rocks at stream side made for an excellent Trout bait!

Here's the last Trout and fish I caught .13.5" 1#3OZ. Tasted great .I slip floated a half crawler on a Carl Hendrix Jig ,5' below the surface in 10-12' of water .Rowing around in a 10 ' boat not far from the ramp where they were stocked I drifted and worked the oars in a spot I saw a Trout Jumping away from being chased by a Cormorant the day before .

Landlocked Atlantic Salmon two fish Limit in New Jersey . Both 14,1/2" Tasted great but not like Pink flesh Salmon ,more like Trout .Ist time catch for me with this species .

Don't usually catch Trout in a lake but got one on a #3 silver Krocodile spoon last week and my buddy Steve got 2 on a Rattlin' Rap. My fish was up in the column and jumped three times . I am guessing we caught them near a 10/20/ 30 ' convergence but didn't have the depth finder in the boat that day . Going by a undetailed map.

During the 2015 fall trout stocking season the Division of Fish and Wildlife will stock more than 20,000 trout in the state's major trout waters. The fish will be stocked from the Pequest Trout Hatchery from October 13-21.

This year will see a return to the stocking of larger fish measuring approximately 14" up to 22" in length and weighing one-and-a-half pounds to almost eight pounds. These Rainbow Trout will be stocked in 16 streams and 15 ponds over the two-week period.

As in past years, streams are stocked the first week, and ponds and lakes are stocked during the second week. The majority of streams stocked in the fall support holdover trout fisheries, providing anglers opportunities for larger trout to be caught year-round.

Fall trout-stocking is one of the most popular stocking programs offered by the Division of Fish and Wildlife. Anglers enjoy the additional fish provided by the Division as well as the opportunity to fish the waters of New Jersey during one of the most beautiful times of year. Cooler temperatures and reduced fishing pressure makes for a relaxed fishing experience. Any trout not caught during the fall will also be available all winter long for anglers to enjoy. Many are even caught the following spring.

The stocking boundaries for streams are the same as in the spring (see the current Freshwater Digest for information). There are no closed dates during the fall stocking period. Updates to the fall stocking program will be posted as necessary.
