HAZLETON– The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PBFC) has made its 2023 trout stocking schedule available via the FishBoatPA mobile app and website, Fishandboat.com, according to state Rep. Dane Watro (R-Luzerne/Schuylkill).
“Spring trout fishing is right around the corner with trout season beginning on April 1,” said Watro. “Trout stocking is a great opportunity to get outside with your family and friends while enjoying Pennsylvania’s waterways.”
The 2023 adult trout stocking schedule is searchable by county, lists the waterways in alphabetical order and indicates stocking dates and the species of trout that will be stocked. Hard copies of the trout stocking schedule are available at both of Watro’s district offices.
To participate in trout fishing, anglers ages 16 and older are required to possess a fishing license and a trout permit. Anglers and boaters can start preparing for opening day of trout season now by purchasing their fishing licenses, launch permits, and boat registration renewals online, on the FishBoatPA mobile app or by visiting one of approximately 700 retail license issuing agents.
A single, statewide Mentored Youth Trout Day will take place on Saturday, March 25.
Questions about trout stocking schedules, or any other state-related issue can be directed to Watro’s offices at 570-453-1344 or 833-933-3679
