Pennsylvania Fall Trout Stocking
The state may be named for Penn’s Woods, but autumn isn’t all about trees here in the Commonwealth – though that brilliant foliage does provide a beautiful backdrop for fantastic fall trout fishing, especially along 147 waters being stocked by the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) in October.

The PFBC will stock 89 streams with 47,100 adult trout. In addition, 58 lakes will be stocked with 62,400 adult trout.

First Wave of Bigger Trout Hit Pennsylvania
Trout fishing in Pennsylvania has always been big, but starting this morning it is getting even bigger - literally.

March 1 is a magic date for Keystone State trout anglers. It’s the day the vast majority of trout waters close to fishing so the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission can begin stocking in preparation for the season opener (March 31 in southcentral and southeastern PA; April everywhere else). This year the trout carried on the Commission’s fleet of stocking trucks are significantly larger than in the past.

Proposed Changes to List of Class A Wild Trout Waters
Notice is hereby given that the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is considering changes to its list of Class A Wild Trout Streams. Pursuant to 58 Pa. Code §57.8a (relating to Class A wild trout streams), it is the Commission’s policy to manage self-sustaining Class A wild trout populations as a renewable natural resource to conserve that resource and the angling it provides. Class A wild trout populations represent the best of Pennsylvania’s naturally reproducing trout fisheries. The Commission manages these stream sections solely for the perpetuation of the wild trout fishery with no stocking.

At its meeting on January 22 and 23, 2007, the Commission intends to consider three additions to its list of Class A Wild Trout Streams. The Commission will not consider the removal of any streams from the list at that time.
