A 27 inch brownie was caught 2 weeks ago ugliest trout I have ever seen but huge in the stocked area which is spring mills to coburn bridge.

I agree though on the fact of not stocking over good wild trout streams 100%. I think the regs are fine as they are right now but I have no problem with the slot limit or if it was c@r.

Was that fish in the upper end toward spring mills? Different clubs stock some pretty big fish in the upper part of penns creek. Both browns and rainbows.

Sorry, responding to another comment above unrelated to penns.
+1 for changes to the LBE (lower bald eagle). This, like Kish and Honey creek, is a stream that would thrive under regulations. While people attribute it's fertility to Spring Creek, and this is a big part of it, there are other limestone influences along it's length (or at least cool springs)
Problem is, this is a very popular put and take fishery and changes would get people very upset around here. I think something along the lines of a DHALO from the confluence with Spring creek to the Rt 80 bridge, or better yet the RR trestle, would be fine. Nice compromise. This would keep open most of the more popular spots for harvest and opening day fisherman and families. I fish this stream a lot and after the first week (or after the second stocking) you'll find few hard-core harvest fisherman in this section. - hard core meaning out to collect the limit. people do harvest a few, I'll take some stocked rainbows 3-4 times a year from April to June.

FYI: PFBC has only stocked rainbows in that section for the past two years. So if you catch a brown they are holdovers or wild. With this in mind, may be allowing only the harvest of rainbows would be a good idea. To my knowledge, PA has not used species specific harvest

Lower Bald Eagle is as good a wild trout stream as you will find. People don't realize what is in there.
