BEDFORD – Rep. Jesse Topper (R-Bedford/Franklin/Fulton) announced that copies of this year’s Pennsylvania trout stocking schedule are now available in his district offices in Bedford, Mercersburg and McConnellsburg.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) plans to once again stock approximately 3.2 million trout in 707 streams and 130 lakes open to public angling.
“The release of the annual trout stocking schedule is always a sure sign that spring and fishing season is just around the corner,” Topper said. “Fishing is a great way to break winter’s cabin fever in a family-friendly manner.”
This year, the PFBC began stocking two weeks earlier than usual. These accelerated operations ensure that most waters will be stocked in advance of the single, statewide Mentored Youth Trout Fishing Day on Saturday, March 27, and the single, statewide Opening Day of Trout Season on Saturday, April 3. Due to restrictions, PFBC will not be accepting walk-up volunteers to assist with stocking.
Topper’s Bedford office is located at 133 S. Richard St., his McConnellsburg office is located at 421 Lincoln Way East, Suite A, and the Mercersburg office, located inside borough hall, is at 113 S. Main St.
The stocking schedule is also available online at RepTopper.com
and on the PFBC’s “FishBoatPA” mobile app.
