THE MINUTES OF THE NJ FISH AND GAME COUNCIL

ROBBINSVILLE, NJ FEBRUARY 11, 2020

Chief Barno reported that we are moving into trout season. She reviewed with the Council members changes for the upcoming 2020 Spring Trout Stocking season. Hooks Creek Lake, which has been a part of the trout stocking program for a number of years continues to be off the stocking list due to the saltwater intrusion that continues to occur within the lake. When we do our next Fish Code change we will remove it permanently from the list. West Hudson County Park Pond, in Hudson County that we added as a result of the last Fish Code change, has been very popular among the anglers and is currently being stocked preseason only. We would like to move it to a full allotment of trout so it will get four in‐season stockings in addition to the preseason stocking. This pond is in an urban area close to other opportunities and seems to be the location of choice for anglers in that area. The change would add 1,000 more fish for 2020.

There are a couple of adjustments on stream mileage Neldon’s Brook lost several stocking points and only have one remaining due to the poor behavior of anglers. Pascack Brook gained a stocking point on Kinderkamack Road, it gained a ¼ mile upstream and a ¼ mile downstream.

This will increase 180 trout for 2020 allocations. We had our first Fisheries Forum in the North, we had 46 anglers there.
