NJ Record Salmon Caught!

The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife has officially certified, and is pleased to announce, the catch of a new state record freshwater fish. The fish, a Landlocked Salmon, replaced a record which stood for 67 years and is the first record salmon since stocking began in 2006.

Runelevy Rodriguez of Northvale, New Jersey, reeled in the record Landlocked Salmon on June 2, 2018. The fish weighed in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces, eclipsing the previous state record set in 1951: John Mount's 8 pound fish from Lake Aeroflex when it was known as New Wawayanda Lake.

The fish measured 25.75" in length and had a girth of 15". Runelevy was fishing off a boat on Lake Aeroflex when she reeled in the fish. The fish hit while Runelevy was trolling. She was using an Okuma rod and reel. A spoon served as the lure.
