The trout are biting! There are more than 400 public lakes, ponds and reservoirs in New Jersey where families can cast a line and see what comes back. You’ll need a fishing rod, and bait, of course, but if you’re under 16 you don’t need a fishing license, though older anglers have to have one (a seasonal license is $22.50 and you can buy it at sporting stores or local bait shops). Visit the NJ DEP Division of Fish and Wildlife website for a full list of waterways and up-to-date info.
