Jimbo, pretty much all trout in NJ are stocked at some point. Most places they can't even hold over through summer and it's just catch and take fisheries. ...more we have a couple of streams that stay cool enough and rivers that are deep enough to hold over and allow for successful spawning. This place holds over trout easily because of it's depth, but i'm not honestly sure if or how successful trout spawn in here either way.
those are usually a planted species of trout. If I'm not mistaking. but the do have them, I've seen them up here in Mich, at a few trout ponds.. and have ...more heard of people catching them where the DNR release them. Sweet trout though!! that would make a bad ass mount!! Or rep
