    What is the deepest waters in Lake Hopatcong? I saw a website that said only 58 ft is the deepest? I thought some parts over by Nolans point were 100 ft plus. If some can please give me some accurate info it would be great.

    depth of lake hopatcong

    About the Lake:

    Lake Hopatcong is definitely one of the top 3 lakes for largemouth in NJ. Hopatcong is New Jersey's largest lake with over 2700 acres. The lake has a maximum depth of 58 feet and is approximately 8 miles long. The lake has some good size fish with largemouth averaging 2-3 pounds, some 4-5 pounders as well as a few near the 7 pound range.

    When, Where and with What to fish:

    For more information contact Bill's Guide Service.

    Where to stay:
    Call the NJ Division of Travel and Tourism @ 1-800-Jersey7

    Guide Service:

    If you want a good guide, hire Bill's Guide Service. Bill has been fishing Hopatcong for years and runs some of his tournaments here. He knows the lake well.

    Recommended Boat Ramp:

    Lee's County Park Marina- The majority of the tournaments are run out of Lee's County Park Marina. This ramp is as good as any. There is a launch fee- not sure what it is now. There is ample parking for a 50 boat tournament. There are at least two ramps and might be a third- not sure. Lees Park is located in the South East section of the lake in Van Every Cove. It is off of Howard Blvd in Mt. Arlington.

    Maps:

    Visit the maps page for a good Hopatcong Lake map.

    Yes as far as I know there are only 3 or 4 lakes here in New Jersey that hit the 100 ft depth one is WayWay and the another one is Round Valley Reservoir that is 180' deep, there is also Lake Aeroflexat 110 feet, but keep in mind 100 ft is VERY, VERY DEEP and most lakes don't run that deep.

    The deepest part you will find is about 52 feet. Off Chestnut point in the center of the lake.

    In the late summer months the lake is completely dead to fish past 15 feet. No oxygen.

    100 feet is extremely deep

    most of the glacial lakes that I have read about in NJ average like 15 ft and go down to 40-60, with the exception of the 4 listed above.
    To fish or not to fish...what a stupid question
