Grab Your Flyfishing Gear and Get Ready For This Fall’s Supply Of Trout

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission stocked up some trucks recently and will start bringing trout to one hundred forty-seven different bodies of water. At the end of this month, roughly eighty-nine streams will be stocked up with 47,100 trout. This includes 1,830 brook trout, 6,340 brown trout, and 38,930 rainbow trout. In 58 different lakes, there will be the addition of 62,400 different trout, which includes 4,760 brook trout, 3,440 brown trout, and 54,200 rainbow trout. If you are an angler who wants to find trout then you can benefit more from the streams and lakes governed by the extended trout fishing season regulations, which started September 4th. This allows anglers to snatch up to 3 trout at lengths of at least 7 inches. Another part of the stocking program is the addition of seventy-five streams that are run under particular fishing rules.54 of those stream sections are components of the delayed harvest, as well as programs that only allow artificial lures. This allows for anglers to fish all year but it does not allow for harvest between the day after Labor Day and June 15th. There is also a group of twenty-one stream sections that are maintained only for catch-and-release fly-fishing. These stream sections only permit the use of flyfishing gear and the trout cannot be kept.”There’s rarely a bad time to go trout fishing, and there are some truly great times. Fall in Pennsylvania is one of the best times,” mentioned Doug Austen, executive director of the commission. “Autumn brings with it cooler water temperatures and increased feeding activity.”
