BERKELEY HEIGHTS - Many eager fishermen made their way to ponds and other waterways in the Garden State early this morning as New Jersey's trout fishing season officially began at 8 a.m.

At Seeley's Pond in Berkeley Heights, fishing enthusiasts lined up along the stone wall, eager to make their first catch of the season.

Opening day follows two weeks of the state's Division of Fish and Wildlife stocking trout in New Jersey's waterways, which crews will continue to do over the next two months, bringing nearly 600,000 trout to the state.
