NJ Rainbow Trout

NJ Rainbow Trout

NJ Fish and Wildlife Department Announcement

The opening of New Jersey’s spring trout fishing season on April 10 is quickly approaching. But for a growing number of New Jersey trout anglers, trout season never ends. Progressive trout management and stocking programs have successfully established a thriving year-round trout fishery in the Garden State. Trout anglers fishing New Jersey streams with snow-covered banks is now a common sight.

Backwoods Angler TV came to New Jersey in January and filmed some winter trout fishing for a show that premieres this weekend on cable television and Backwoods Angler TV’s Web site. The show provides compelling proof that New Jersey trout fishing isn’t just a spring thing anymore.

Anglers who already know this and those who have their doubts will be equally impressed by the show’s footage of monster rainbow and brown trout caught and released in the Musconetcong and South Branch of the Raritan. Even fair weather trout anglers will want to see these fish, which will be waiting for them on April 10 along with hundreds of thousands of newly stocked trout.

Backwoods Angler TV’s ‘New Jersey Winter Trout Fishing’ show can be viewed on Saturday, March 20, on their Web site at http://www.backwoodsanglertv.com/index.htm . The show will also air on Service Electric TV2 on Sunday, March 21, at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. and on Blue Ridge Communications Channel 13 on Thursday, March 25, at 9 p.m.

There’s no better way to spend time in the outdoors than trout fishing in New Jersey. Don’t miss out this year! Visit http://www.njfishandwildlife.com/trtinfo_spring.htm for trout fishing information and to buy and print your fishing license and trout stamp online.
