JB MDL Fishing Information

JB MDL offers an abundance of fishing opportunities on every side of the base. The Natural Resources department conducts spring and fall trout stocking of rainbow, brown, brook, and tiger trout in select bodies of water depending on water conditions each year. All trout stocked lakes are closed from spring stocking days until the opening day of NJ trout season. Access to each specific body of water depends on your base access and eligibility. An in-depth list of all JB MDL fishing rules and regulations can be found under the “Regulations” tab on the home screen.

Laurel Pond within Cantonment is strictly for children under the age of 16 and handicapped anglers. Laural Pond is handicapped accessible and is also a trout stocked body of water.


JB MDL Fishing Permit Required. The daily bag limit of trout is per NJ state regulations. All other species, sizes, and limits will also be in accordance with state regulations unless otherwise posted at specific lakes.

     A CATCH and Release advisory has been implemented on JB MDL property for all native species until further notice!
