 On the Saturday, 4/3/2021 Opening Day of Trout Season, some skilled anglers did harvest their creel of five fish.

Please visit the link below from the Take Me Fishing website for information on the best times to trout fish before your next outing.

 In-season stocking will begin in this week with many waters being float-stocked, owing to the dedicated efforts of the float stocking cadre and dedicated student teams from Lampeter-Strasburg, Penn Manor & Solanco.
