The largest fish in the lake, courtesy of James Barberio, is a 26-inch, 7-pound trout.
Par-Troy Spring is officially underway. The season was greeted Saturday with the annual trout stocking at Lake Parsippany. The event was held by the Lake Parsippany Property Owners Association and was led by Mayor James Barberio.

The trout stocking event has become a traditional start of the season for local fishers and families. This marks the fourth year Mayor Barberio has participated, donating the biggest fish available and contributing a gift certificate prize for the fisher who catches this 26-inch, 7-pound fish during the season. “I wouldn’t miss this event for the world," said Barberio.

And we wonder why kids do not always show their elders …

If the sunny skies, warming temperatures and flip-flop appearances didn't convince you that spring has come, perhaps the sight of anglers on Lake Parsippany will do the trick. You're sure to see them soon enough, as fishing season kicked off Saturday at 8 a.m. The conceivably near-year-long season starts the week after the lake is stocked with trout and ends when the fish are gone. The week in between the stocking and the season start date is to allow the fish to become accustomed to their new home. For 2012, trout stocking took place March 31, as part of a contest sponsored by the Lake Parsippany Fishing Club. The largest fish stocked are tagged and a prize is awarded to the person who eventually catches it. Mayor James Barberio, as …
