Pennsylvania trout stocking schedules are now available online in preparation for opening day of trout season in April.

A total of 733 streams and 124 lakes will be stocked as a part of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s 2013 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 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 13.  There also will be a regional opening day at the end of March for many southeastern Pennsylvania counties.

Copies of the trout stocking schedules can be found online at the PFBC website.
