Trout Stocking Postponed Due to Heat & Drought

The drought and warm weather are interfering with Garden State anglers plans of Fall trout fishing... at least for a couple of more weeks.

The New Jersey of Fish, Game & wildlife announced they are canceling their popular Fall trout stocking until October 12, 2010 due to unusually warm water throughout the state.  Stream temperatures are still running in the upper 60's and low 70's, much too warm for the oversize two year old fish the Division stocks each Fall. These fish are used to living in the cool 52 degree water at the hatchery and to stock them in such warm water is too risky for the fish.
