The Lopatcong Creek has long since been revered for its splendor throughout the fishing community. This Category 1, trout production stream has been referred to as the hidden jewel of Lopatcong.

The Lopatcong Creek Initiative, with the help of our partners, aims to restore and protect our stream’s trout habitat by helping to lower water temperatures. Through coordinated efforts, community involvement, and hands on restoration, we hope to strengthen the Lopatcong Creek ecosystem and trout habitat so that it may continue to be enjoyed for generations to come.

If you’re a fishing enthusiast who wants to participate in the protection and restoration of our creek, please complete our Volunteer/Contact Form below.

Visit Trout Unlimited, America’s leading coldwater conservation organization, for extensive information about how fishing and conservation go hand and hand.

Additionally, LCI hopes to work with municipal officials throughout the Lopatcong Creek Watershed region to discuss plans and opportunities for adding new and improved recreational access along the creek for hikers and more.

State and countywide efforts are currently underway to extend the walking path along the historic Morris Canal, which runs alongside the Lopatcong Creek for several miles from Phillipsburg to Greenwich.
