The stream flowing in Tinton Falls, behind the old Grist Mill, is usually referred to (by anglers) as the Hockhockson Brook. In fact, NJ Fish and Wildlife call it such in their stocking lists.
However, a perusal of local topo maps shows it listed as Pine Brook, until such brook branches off upstream on Water St.
Upon which the main stem is referred to as Hockhockson Brook with the branch then labeled the Pine Brook.
No matter, trout are in there, albeit in small numbers after the hordes (!!) of anglers trampled it's banks this past stocking season...
