In mid-October the Division stocked 4,325 Landlocked Atlantic Salmon, ranging from 12 to 16 inches, in four northern New Jersey lakes suitable for salmon as follows:
- Wawayanda Lake – 2,103
- Lake Aeroflex – 810
- Tilcon Lake – 762 (Note: Salmon caught in these Holdover Trout Lakes must at least 12 inches long to be harvested)
- Merrill Creek Reservoir – 650 (Note: This reservoir is regulated as a Trophy Trout Lake and has a miniumum size limit of 15 inches.)
The daily limit is two salmon per day. Salmon (and trout) caught in Holdover Trout Lakes during the spring three-week pre-season closure preceding opening day of trout season in April must be released immediately and unharmed.
Anglers are urged to report catches of these fish by e-mailing the Bureau of Freshwater Fisheries at email@example.com and you’re asked to attach photos of your catch.
