Freshwater Fisheries Forums

2022 Forum Presentations

Each year, Fish and Wildlife’s Bureau of Freshwater Fisheries holds three public forums to improve communication with the angling public and to solicit public input in shaping freshwater fisheries programs in the future. The forums are a perfect opportunity for all freshwater anglers to learn about existing programs and to share their views and recommendations. In 2022 the two general Fisheries Forums were combined and held remotely due to Covid-19 concerns.

Forum topics cover all aspects of freshwater management, including both warmwater and coldwater fisheries. Each year updates on specific management activities are provided, as well as open discussions on future management recommendations. Over the years various regulatory, management and stocking changes have resulted from suggestions from anglers attending the forums.

Combined North and South Jersey Fisheries Forum – February 26, 2022 at 10am, held virtually

Trout Meeting – March 12, 2022 at 10am, held virtually

The forums provide ample time for open discussion with professional staff to answer any questions or address concerns of anglers during the extended question and answer period.

Attend these meetings and be an integral part in the development of future programs and regulations related to New Jersey’s freshwater fisheries resources.
