I hope this guy wasn't out for trout:

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP — A body was found in the Musconetcong River in
Morris County Tuesday morning.

At about 11 a.m. a local business owner reported what appeared to be a
partially submerged human body in the Musconetcong, according to Washington
Township Police.

Responding officers from Washington Township and the Hackettstown Police
Department observed the body wedged in a log jam behind the Shell gas
station on Route 57.

The Budd Lake Fire Company Water Rescue Team assisted with recovering the
body before it was turned over to the Morris County Medical Examiners

The incident is currently under investigation, but because the Musconetcong
River borders both Morris and Warren County as well as Hackettstown and
Washington Township, Public Information Officer for Washington Township
Police Lt. Mark Niemynski was unsure as to which organization will continue
the investigation.

Niemynski said identification of the body, the cause of death, and whether
it will be deemed suspicious, will depend on the outcome of the autopsy.

Long Valley Fire Company, Morris County Sheriff's Department, Morris County
Prosecutor's Office also assisted in the recovery.
