Information from the State of New Jersey.

List of New Jersey ponds, lakes, and reservoirs open to public angling.

At last count there were over 4,100 freshwater lakes, ponds, impoundments and reservoirs, one acre or greater, in New Jersey. These amount to over 61,000 acres. This sounds like an awful lot of fishing water, however because most of them are privately controlled the great majority of these waters are closed to the general angler. The following list of waters is designed to assist the fisherman in finding a place to fish and to give him a general idea of what facilities he will find when he gets there. The list is probably not 100 percent complete and will never be 100 percent accurate, as conditions change constantly. We have included only those waters where a good population of desirable species of worthwhile sizes exists and where public access is assured.
