Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available, Peifer Says
HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania trout stocking schedules are now available in preparation for opening day of trout season in April, Rep. Mike Peifer (R-Monroe/Pike/Wayne) 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 view March as the official start of stocking season.
The PFBC will stock nearly 4 million adult trout in Pennsylvania 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, April 14.
Copies of the trout stocking schedules are available at Peifer’s office at the Wayne County Visitors Center, 32 Commercial St., Suite 300, in Honesdale, telephone 570-253-5533, or by visiting his website at RepPeifer.com
