Trout Stocking Underway

WAYNESBORO – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission is stocking Letterkenny Reservoir with trout this week to provide more opportunities for anglers fishing through the extended season that ends Feb. 28, according to Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin).

β€œThe next few weeks can provide a really relaxing time to fish in cooler temperatures while surrounded by the fall foliage. The commission is stocking hatchery-raised, adult rainbow, brown and book trout in streams and lakes across the state,” Schemel said.

Because of concerns related to COVID-19, volunteers are not permitted to assist with the fall and winter stocking.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission advises that trout can be fished for immediately; anglers ages 16 and older must have a valid fishing license and trout permit. The daily creel limit is three trout of combined species with a minimum size of 7 inches.

Those who need to purchase licenses and permits can visit or a licensed issuing agent.

Letterkenny Reservoir can be accessed off Lower Horse Valley Road near the intersection with Forge Hill Road.
