Fishing Access Locations on Trout Waters – County Listing

The table below was compiled to assist in locating public access to water stocked with trout by NJDEP Fish and Wildlife. Waters are grouped by county; where multiple listings for a stream or river are given they are listed from upstream to downstream. This list is also available with waters listed alphabetically.

Please note that this is only a partial list of major fishing access sites. Other locations and waterbodies will be stocked as well.

For more information on trout fishing in New Jersey see the Trout Information page. Also – We would like to evaluate the angler use of this fishing access list. Please e-mail the Lebanon Fisheries Office at to let us know how helpful it was to you and/or if you find any errors.
