10 March 2023- Rep. Jesse Topper (R-Bedford and Fulton) announced that copies of this year’s Pennsylvania trout stocking schedule are now available in his district offices in Bedford and McConnellsburg.
The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) plans to once again stock approximately 3.2 million trout in 697 streams and 126 lakes open to public angling.
“When the waterways are stocked with trout, spring, and its accompanying warmer weather, is not far behind,” Topper said. “This time of the year is always a great time to get outside to enjoy nature and activities in our area.”
The statewide opening day for trout season is Saturday, April 1. A single, statewide Mentored Youth Trout Day will take place on Saturday, March 25.
The Bedford office is open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday and the McConnellsburg office hours are Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The stocking schedule is also available online at RepTopper.com and on the PFBC’s “FishBoatPA” mobile app.
