Well then RVR has a very healthy population of Lake, Rainbow and Brown trout. The latter two can be found in the shallow water at certain times of the year where fly fishing is an option. Very good SMB also.

19 species of fish inhabit Round Valley Reservoir and is a designated Trophy Trout Lake which currently holds the following NJ state fishing records:
•Lake Trout 32lbs. 8oz.
•Brown Trout 21lbs. 6oz.
•Smallmouth Bass 7lbs. 2oz.
•American Eel 6lbs. 13oz.

Hmmmmmmm, I might have to add round valley to my NJ list. Best I know lake trout only come from the deep to spawn. Probably not the best time to be fishing for them.
