JEFFERSON – The Knee Deep Club is inviting the public to help with the annual stocking of Lake Hopatcong, which will take place Saturday afternoon around 3pm. The trucks containing more than 1,200 trout are expected to arrive at Dow’s Boat Rental in Nolan’s Point between 2:30pm and 3pm.
Because there is still a thick ice presence on Lake Hopatcong, instead of patio boats dispatched to strategic locations on the lake, cars and trucks will be used to transport buckets of fish to the few open water areas located around the lake. The fish will be floated from the shore and from bridges, said club president Ed Makin.
The event will take place rain or shine.
