Stocked Trout Water Bodies (Points): Pennsylvania, 2016

Many streams, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs are officially classified as Nstocked trout waters.N This means that these waters contain significant portions that are open to public fishing and are stocked with trout. The waters in this layer are lakes (not flowing waters) classified as Nstocked trout watersN and these are open to trout harvest during the Nextended seasonN (see Commonwealth Inland Waters). Unlisted tributary streams (those not included in this list of Nstocked trout watersN) are not open to harvest of trout during the Nextended season.N Only stocked trout waters and all waters downstream of stocked trout waters are open during this period. Spearing fish is not permitted in any of these waters at any time of the year. These waters are closed to all fishing (including taking of minnows) from March 1 to 8 a.m. on the opening day of the trout season. A person shall be deemed to be fishing if he or she has in possession any fishing line, rod, or other device that can be used for fishing while on or in any water or on the banks within 25 feet of any water where fishing is prohibited. Check with the nearest Fish and Boat Commission office if there is any question about whether or not a water area is Nstocked.N
