State Trout Stocking in Local Waters Starts This Month

HARRISBURG PA – Pennsylvania’s adult trout stocking schedule for February, March, and April 2023 has been announced by the state Fish and Boat Commission, and waters in Montgomery, Berks and Chester counties will benefit from the more than 3.2 million trout the commission intends to release this year for public angling.

The statewide “Mentored Youth Trout Day,” a single day during which registered young fishers and their adult mentors get a jump on the season, is scheduled for March 25 (Saturday). The opening day of trout season for the rest of the public is April 1 (Saturday). Got your fishing license yet?; if not, buy a license online, or from an authorized seller.
