2014 Adult Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available

2014 Adult Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available
 
HARRISBURG, Pa. (January 31) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced today that the 2014 adult trout stocking schedules are now available online at www.fishandboat.com.  
 
Anglers can easily search the trout stocking schedules for locations and dates of interest. To make the list, simply go to www.fishandboat.com, click on the link for Trout Stocking 2014, select a county and enter start and end dates from the calendars at the top of the page. Then press “Go.”
 
The search results will provide each body of water within a county that is scheduled for stocking, the section of water, the date, the species of trout, the meeting place and time, the hatchery stocking the section, the regulations that apply, and the latitude/longitude number.
 
“The PFBC annually stocks approximately 3.2 million adult trout in 731 streams and 124 lakes open to public angling,” said Dave Miko, Chief of the PFBC Division of Fisheries Management. “These figures include approximately 2.01 million rainbow trout; 647,000 brown trout; and 527,000 brook trout. As with past practice, the average size of the trout produced for stocking is 11 inches in length.”
 
In addition to these fish, the PFBC plans to stock about 8,500 trophy golden rainbow trout that weigh an average of 1.5 pounds and measure at least 14 inches long. Also, cooperative nurseries run by sportsmen’s clubs across the state will add another 1 million trout to waters close to them.
 
About 53% of the trout are stocked prior to opening day; 43% are stocked between opening day and the end of May; and the remaining 4% are stocked from October through February of the following year.
 
The 2014 season will open March 22 for the second annual Mentored Youth Day on 12 waters in 18 southeastern counties, including: Adams, Berks, Bucks, Chester, Cumberland, Dauphin, Delaware, Franklin, Juniata, Lancaster, Lebanon, Lehigh, Montgomery, Northampton, Perry, Philadelphia, Schuylkill and York.
 
The following weekend - March 29 – kicks off the Regional Opening Day of Trout Season in the same 18 southeastern counties.
 
A second Mentored Youth Day will be held on April 5, the Saturday before the April 12 regular opening day of trout season.

Changes for the 2014 season include new waters, stocking extensions on waters as a result of classification upgrades, waters restored to the stocking program, and the removal of waters from the stocking program.
