Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available, Says Knowles
HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania trout stocking schedules are now available in preparation for opening day of trout season in April, Rep. Jerry Knowles (R-Berks/Schuylkill) announced today.
A total of 736 streams and 121 lakes will be stocked as a part of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s 2012 adult trout stocking program. Stocking occurs year-round, though most anglers typically view March as the official start of stocking season.
The PFBC will stock nearly 4 million adult trout in Pennsylvanian rivers and streams that are open to the public for fishing. More than 1 million additional trout will be stocked by private contractors across the Commonwealth.
Opening day for trout season is currently scheduled for Saturday, March 31.
Copies of the trout stocking schedules can be found online at www.RepKnowles.com
. Hard copies of trout stocking schedules may also be obtained at Knowles’ Tamaqua office, located at 237 West Broad St., Tamaqua.
