Too many trout in Pennsylvania

Too many trout in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania trout anglers will be receiving a bonus of sorts with additional trout to be stocked in the Southeast part of the state. The fish are “extras” raised by the Bellefonte State Fish Hatchery this year.

The Commission stocks some 3.4 million adult trout in Pennsylvania waters open to public angling. This figure includes trout produced at state fish hatcheries, trout obtained from the United States Fish & Wildlife Service as part of a cooperative agreement, and trout obtained through a purchase contract with a commercial hatchery. The additional fish stockings represent a surplus from our Bellefonte Hatchery operations.

The first of these stockings will be on June 4th, with fish planted in section 2 & 6 of the Tulpehocken Creek, Berks County. On June 5th section 4 of the Pohopoco Creek in Carbon County and section 4 of Saucon Creek in Northampton County will receive fish.

A stocking is also planned for June 11th in section 3 of Hay Creek, Berks County.
