The start of trout season in Pennsylvania is this Saturday, and the S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie are getting ready for it in a big way.

On Wednesday, members of the organization released hundreds of brown trout into Presque Isle Bay.

Each year, the S.O.N.S. receive brown trout fingerlings in the fall. They then raise them through the winter and release them in the spring.

It's all part of the club's efforts to ensure quality fishing on Lake Erie. 

"It's really just the beginning or our season," said Jack Bock, S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie. "We spend our summer holding fishing clinics for different school groups, church groups out on Presque Isle over at Liberty Park or even over on the public dock."

Pennsylvania's opening day of trout season is the Saturday, April 1st. The S.O.N.S. of Lake Erie are always looking for more members and support.
