April 16 Marks Opening Day Of Trout Season Statewide

Anglers from across the state have been helping the Fish and Boat Commission stock more than one million adult trout in preparation for the traditional opening day on April 16.   

            PFBC Executive Director John Arway says opening day is a time-honored tradition that families and kids look forward to every year.
            “Opening day is a huge event for so many families and their children,” Mr. Arway said. “In fact, the regional opening day and the traditional opening day are two of the biggest fishing days of the year. To get ready for them, our ‘great white fleet’ of stocking trucks has been busy since mid-February replenishing Pennsylvania's waterways with a fresh supply of brook, brown, and rainbow trout.”
            April 2 marked the regional opening day of trout in 18 southeastern counties.
