‘Big job to pull off’

The Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission encourages anglers and the public to assist in stocking efforts.

“If trout fever is already starting to set in and you’re already looking to get outside, we welcome everyone to join us for a stocking event and help put the fish in the water,” Tim Schaeffer, Commission executive director, said. “Not only is it a fun, educational and rewarding experience, but it’s also a very big job to pull off every season. We couldn’t do it without our volunteers.

Here’s a look at the stocking schedules for streams in Warren County. The schedule, available online, includes more specific information about meeting times and places for each of the stockings.
