2024 Trout Stocking Schedule Released for Schuylkill County

Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission has released the 2024 Trout Stocking Schedule and we’ve got the information anglers in Schuylkill County need right here.

“Even though the calendar says it’s still winter, Spring will be here before we know it,” Brian Niewinski, Director of the PFBC’s Bureau of Hatcheries, says in a statement released Thursday in connection with the new trout stocking schedule coming out.

The Opening Day of trout season here in Schuylkill County and all of Pennsylvania is Saturday, April 6, beginning at 8 a.m. A week prior, on March 30, there will be a statewide Mentored Youth Trout Day.

Statewide, the Fish and Boat Commission reports, there will be about 3.2 million fish stocked in rivers, lakes, and streams. About 2.4 million of those will be Rainbow trout, another 702,000 Brown trout, and 132,000 Brook trout.

The state is also stocking about 14,000 golden Rainbow trout, including preseason and mid-season stockings. And about 70,000 brood fish – which are at least 30 months old and measure between 14-20 inches – will also be stocked.

The average trout stocked will be about 11 inches and weigh a little more than a half-pound.

PA Fish License Requirements

Anyone 16 and above who wish to go trout fishing and retain their catch must have both a fishing license and a trout permit.

Anglers and boaters are encouraged to get a head start on the upcoming trout season by securing their 2024 fishing licenses, launch permits, and boat registrations. These can be acquired through the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) website, the FishBoatPA mobile application, or at any of the nearly 700 retail locations that issue licenses.

A digital copy of a fishing license on a smartphone serves as valid proof of possession.
