Fall Trout Stocking Update
UPDATE: We reported the Youghiogheny Catch & Return area was stocked on Oct 1, it was not, Glades Park was the area stocked. The Youghiogheny Catch & Return area will be stocked at a later date.
The 2015 fall trout stocking is scheduled to commence the week of September 27 and continue through October. The fall stocking is significantly smaller (25,300 fish) with fewer stocked locations than the spring edition. Though small, the fall trout fishing experience is exciting, fish are actively feeding and colors are at their best.
While the Department makes every attempt to meet a schedule; weather conditions, water temperatures, stream and river levels, and vehicle availability can delay or alter some stockings. For a daily update of actual stockings sign up for our nontidal recreational fisheries email list. Anglers may also call 800-688-3467 and press option #1 to get a recorded weekly update.
