Lehigh River Online Survey Form

Hello Fellow Anglers,
As many of you may know, the PFBC has been stocking fingerling trout throughout the Lehigh down to about Palmerton for a few years now and are now entering a phase where they will try to assess the viability of the program. Over the past year we have seen some amazing growth rate for fingerling trout, rainbows in particular, and we are hopeful that the PFBC will find that the trout that they have been stocking will have a positive influence on the fishery.

We need your help! In addition to survey boxes located at many popular fishing spots along the river we have created an online reporting system located here:

If you catch any trout while fishing the Lehigh River, please take the time to report your catch and also pay attention for fin clips while fishing as these will help to assess if/when the fish may have been stocked by the PFBC or other organizations such as the LRSA.

Snail mail cards are located at the aforementioned boxes located at some of the more popular fishing locations and angler log books can be downloaded from the PFBC here: ... river_angler_log_book.pdf

PS - Mods, if this can be stickied in the reports section or something else can be done to keep it visible and noticed we would be grateful. This is a very important phase for the Lehigh and will determine the extent of future involvement by the PFBC in the trout fishery in the lower section of the river. Thank you!

You can put lip stick on a pig, but it's still a pig!

If you mean to the online survey form, it's only been live for a day or two and we're still in the process of linking it up but we're trying to generate some awareness among Lehigh anglers for it.

Response has been decent in the past with the snail mail cards and survey boxes, hopefully the online version will be convenient for some and increase reporting.

People are taking the cards from the boxes posted at the select locations. A number of boxes are empty and need refilling already.

Also, hope people will fill them out and send them in.
