The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission announced today that steelhead are officially on the run in Erie after the heavy rain experienced this week.

The steelhead run is timed perfectly with the launch of the Commission’s new website mapping feature, which allows anglers to locate Lake Erie tributaries to fish for steelhead, download directions to the tributaries, find places to park, and read the local fishing regulations. Check it out at (Click on the yellow triangles for detailed information on fishing destinations and the Help icon for help information.)

The Commission stocks over a million juvenile steelhead each year and continually works on improving access to Lake Erie tributaries through property acquisitions and easements using angler funds acquired through the Erie permit and Erie/trout/salmon combo permit. The Commission also makes funds available for property acquisitions and easements through the Erie Access Improvement Grant Program. You can find out more about this program at (click on “Grants” located in the left navigation bar of the home page).

As always, the Commission asks all anglers to leave no trace by picking up all bait containers, discarded line, and any other trash before leaving fishing sites.

2007 and 2008 Warmwater Stream Survey Results SE
In July and August of 2007 and 2008 Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission Area 6 along with other agency personnel sampled 10 different moderately-wide to wide (14-36 meters) warmwater streams in southeastern Pennsylvania to document the warmwater fish communities as part of a greater project that would eventually characterize warmwater stream fish communities throughout the state. Sample sites measuring 300-500 meters in length were electrofished at specific locations (segments) on each stream, which are listed in Table 1. Most of the stream segments were characterized as slow moving with few riffles and long pools or long glides. The majority of the pools were up to 1.25 meters deep, but pools were occasionally up to 2.0 meters deep. Streams sampled included those both in the Delaware River drainage and Susquehanna River drainage.

Pennsylvania Fall Trout Stocking

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