Shallow streams place stocking of trout on hold
Friday, September 30, 2005

For the Star-Ledger
A long period of unusually dry weather has reduced many New Jersey trout streams to mere trickles and is forcing the state Division of Fish and Wildlife to curtail the fall trout stocking program.

The division will not stock the Black River in Morris County. The 780 fish earmarked for the river will instead be brought to the section of the Lamington River between Route 523 and the North Branch of the Raritan River.

Additionally, there will be no stocking of the South Branch of the Raritan in Morris County upstream of the Route 24 bridge in Long Valley and no stocking of the Wallkill River in Sussex County upstream of West Mountain Road bridge in Sparta.
