The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is reminding anglers that the statewide Opening of Trout Season is this Saturday, April 6. 

According to the PFBC, anglers can begin fishing at 8 a.m. on Saturday. 

Throughout the 2024 season, the PFBC will stock approximately 3.2 million adult trout in 697 streams and lakes open to public angling. 

This includes approximately 2.3 million Rainbow Trout, 707,000 Brown Trout and 168,000 Brook Trout. 

The PFBC said the average size of the trout produced for stocking is 11 inches in length with an average weight of .58 pounds. 

Additionally, the PFBC will also stock approximately 70,000 trophy-sized trout measuring 14"-20".

This includes approximately 14,000 golden Rainbow Trout, weighing an average of 1.5 pounds. 

During the regular trout season (Opening Day through Labor Day), anglers may keep up to five trout per day measuring at least seven inches long. 

However, during the extended season from September 3, 2024 through February 18, 2025, the daily limit is three trout.
