Trout Stocking Hits Full Swing in the Area

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) trout stocking efforts will hit high gear over the next two weeks in anticipation of the season opener on April 16.

In recent years, the agency, in part because of the early opener in the southeastern part of the state and because of trout migration studies, have attempted to stock the area waters closer to opening day.

Volunteers are always welcome to help with the stocking efforts.

Listed are the dates slated for pre-season stocking by the PFBC with the body of water, meeting place, time and species to be stocked.
