The Round Valley Trout Association (RVTA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to maintaining and improving the fishery at the Round Valley Reservoir. Our primary purpose is to supplement the State Of New Jersey's stocking of trout and herring in Round Valley by raising funds for this purpose. We have also established a "Trophy Trout Program" that has seen some true "giants" being stocked.

Spring is in the air, the Valley no longer has ice on it and the fish are biting. This must mean that tournament season is coming! Our 3rd Annual Steve Welgoss Memorial Tournament is taking place on Saturday, May 17th! We will be taking pre-orders for t-shirts this year until April 28th. Please email Jody at jwelgoss17@gmail.com to arrange preorder or see her at the April RVTA meeting. Proceeds from these shirts will go back into the RVTA Trophy Trout program and also The V Foundation for Gastric Cancer research. Adult sizes S thru 4XL are available at $20.00 each. I will have the shirts at the May 15th RVTA meeting or at the tournament on the 17th for pick up.

NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife Biologist Shawn Crouse report on RV and Furunculosis.

2014 Report

Attention Anglers!!
Round Valley will not be stocked by the State this year!! Click here for details..

What is Furunculosis?? 
Click here to find out.

The Division feels confident that Round Valley is free of Furunculosis. Any angler catching a Round Valley trout with visible signs of boil-like growths on the fish’s skin should notify the Division at 908-637-4173 extension 120 or 908-236-2118.  Instructions are to keep the fish in a zip-lock bag, on ice but not frozen and deliver it to the Division within 24 hours for examination.
