Trout Stocking Schedules Now Available, Says Kauffman
HARRISBURG - Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Franklin) recently announced the 2016 adult trout stocking schedules are now available in preparation for opening day of trout season in April.

“Each year, thousands of individuals hit the waters in Pennsylvania to enjoy the sport of fishing,” said Kauffman. “To know which waterways have been recently stocked, it’s a good idea to check out the state’s trout stocking schedule now available in my offices and online.”

More than 700 streams and 120 lakes will be stocked as a part of the commission’s 2015 adult trout stocking program. The PFBC will stock nearly 3 million adult trout in Pennsylvania rivers and streams that are open to the public for fishing.

About 53 percent of the trout are stocked prior to opening day, 43 percent are stocked between opening day and the end of May, and the remaining 4 percent are stocked from October through February of the following year.

Kauffman noted that the statewide opening day for trout season is Saturday, April 16, with Franklin County enjoying an earlier regional opening day on Saturday, April 2.

Copies of the trout stocking schedules, including a searchable database, can be found online at A limited number of hard copies of the trout stocking schedules may also be obtained at Kauffman’s offices in Shippensburg (703 Municipal Drive) and Chambersburg (166 S. Main St.).
