Unplanned Delaware River Trout Stocking - 5/6/05

The September '04 and the April '05 floods both inundated the private Musky Trout Hatchery raceways in Warren County near the Delaware River. The brook, brown, rainbow and tiger trout (the cross of a brown and brook trout) that were in those raceways are now being caught in the Delaware River and its tributaries.

The reported catches are:

A 5 lb. tiger trout from the Musconetcong River about 1000 yards upstream of the Delaware River confluence.

A 5 lb. and a 7 lb. tiger trout from the Pequest River at the base of the Belvidere dam.

A 15.5-inch and 20-inch tiger trout from the Delaware River just below the wing dam in Lambertville. (see photo, click to enlarge)

A tiger trout from the Delaware River below the Yardley, PA boat ramp.

A tiger trout from the Delaware River at Lambertville, caught in Lewis’ shad net.

A 6 lb., 25-inch brook trout from the Delaware River near the Old Wharf in Trenton.

A 12 lb. 12 oz., 31-inch brown trout from the Paulinskill River below the Columbia Lake Dam.

When the Delaware River warms more of these trout will be caught as they seek out, and become concentrated, in the colder tributaries. Pennsylvania biologists, too, have received catch reports of large trout, especially tiger trout, from the Delaware River. [cool][up]

My heart is bleedin' for you, buddy, and I truly feel your "pain"!!!!! :D

I'll throw some deer meat your way once I get my crossbow and learn how to shoot it accurately OR I'll have this guy I know who picks up "road kills" save you a few hind quarters and back straps if the're not damaged too bad - They might be a little "aged", but I'm sure you won't mind!!!! :D:D
