Re: Need a trout stream
Really don't know any streams in Monmouth County but there are enough guys from NJ here that I'm sure you'll get some info.
But I will make a recommendation trees and streams go together especially in this part of the US. Learn to rollcast , try upstream casting , wade to where the trees are no longer a hinderance. Trees are nice to look at and they improve the ecosystem of the stream. If you don't want trees go to a pay to fish trout park! Learn to enjoy them and you'll have better times on the stream. Hope you find a good one close to home.

Update-- a friend who grew up down there messaged me that the North Branch of the Mettedeconk River near Lakewood supports a good year round trout fisherie. Didn't know if he spelled it right but he said it was a solid trout stream!
