Trout season will begin two weeks early this year for 18 counties in southeast Pennsylvania. Folks in these Pennsylvania counties can begin trout fishing on March 31st this year. The rest of the state will have to wait until April 14th.
In addition to this change, the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission also plans to begin stocking larger trout statewide. They've also added sections of Plum and Halter creeks in Blair County to the list of Class A Wild Trout Waters and removed a section of Beaverdam Run, Somerset County from the Class A list.
All of these efforts are part of an ongoing effort to help provide a better trout fishing experience for Pennsylvania anglers.
