NJ Wawayanda Lake
Marker Description: Lake Wawayanda and Wawayanda Creek are stocked with trout and Landlocked Salmon. Other variety of fish found within these waters are: Yellow Perch, Largemouth Bass, Pickerel, Catfish, Sunfish, Black and White crappies and Bowfin.

The NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife introduced Landlocked Salmon to Lake Wawayanda to provide anglers with an opportunity to fish for this unique coldwater sport fish close to home. Only a handful of deep lakes in New Jersey have suitable year round habitat for coldwater fish like trout and salmon. Lake Aeroflex in Kittatinny Valley State Park also received the Landlocked Salmon.

The New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife stocks Lake Wawayanda and Wawayanda Creek annually with trout. The lake is designated a “holdover trout lake.”

Nah, I didn't go, got info from another site, guy said he tried everything and another fishermen in a boat gave him some herring and depth and he started catching them - spectacular jumps and fights. Will make it at some point I hope.

Nice landlockeds! I've been thinking about trying Aeroflex for salmon. Did you use a boat?
