The Gloucester County Board of Commissioners and Department of Parks and Recreation announce trout season will begin on Saturday, April 10.
“Beginning Saturday, April 10 at 8 a.m., licensed sportsmen and women are encouraged to get outside and start fishing,” said Commissioner Director Robert M. Damminger.
To fish for trout, a valid New Jersey fishing license and trout stamp are both required for residents at least 16 years and less than 70 years of age plus all non-residents 16 years and older.
There are two County owned parks that allow fishing: Scotland Run Park and Greenwich Lake Park. You must have a valid fishing license to fish at any of the County Parks.
“Gloucester County takes a lot of pride in our parks and the amenities we have to offer. Our parks provide a great setting to experience the beauty of nature,” said Commissioner Jim Lavender.
Please continue to abide by social distancing regulations and mask mandates while fishing at the parks.
