Pennsylvania Trout Fishing Regulations

Stocked Trout Waters

In Pennsylvania, numerous streams, lakes, ponds, and reservoirs are designated as "stocked trout waters," meaning they are open to public fishing and regularly stocked with trout. During the extended season, only these designated waters allow trout harvest, while unlisted streams remain closed to trout harvest.

Fishing Regulations

  • Closed Period: From February 20 until 8 a.m. on the opening day of the trout season, all fishing activities (including the taking of minnows) are prohibited in stocked trout waters.

  • Definition of Fishing: Possession of any fishing line, rod, or related device within 25 feet of prohibited fishing areas constitutes fishing, even if not actively engaged in angling.

  • Coverage: Unless specified otherwise in the Region Regulated Trout Waters section, the term "stocked trout waters" encompasses the entire stream from headwaters to mouth.

Note

  • Updates: While efforts are made to maintain an accurate list of stocked trout waters, changes may occur due to last-minute adjustments in water quality conditions. For the most current information, contact the nearest Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission office.

Stocked Trout Waters Open to Year-Round Fishing

These waters are classified as "stocked trout waters" and offer year-round fishing opportunities, subject to specific regulations:

  • Seasonal Regulations:

    • From 8 a.m. on the opening day of trout season through September 4, Commonwealth inland sizes and creel limits apply.
    • From January 1 through February 19, and from September 5 through December 31, "extended season" sizes and creel limits apply.
  • Closure Period:

    • From February 20 to the opening day of trout season, these waters are open to fishing, but no trout may be taken or possessed during this time.
  • Trout Permit Requirement:

    • Fishing in rivers and streams designated as stocked trout waters open to year-round fishing necessitates a current trout permit.
    • However, a trout permit is unnecessary for fishing in lakes and ponds designated as stocked trout waters open to year-round fishing unless trout are taken, killed, or possessed during the act of fishing on or in these waters.

Streams Designated as Both Class A Wild Trout Streams and Stocked Trout Waters

These stream sections hold the dual designation of Stocked Trout Waters and Class A Wild Trout Streams, with specific regulations in place:

  • Closure Period:
    • Fishing is prohibited from February 20 to 8 a.m. on the Opening Day of the Regular Season for Trout.
  • Extended Season (September 5, 2023, through February 18, 2024):
    • No Harvest – Catch and Immediate Release Only.
