Proposing a ‘Plan B’ for Pennsylvania’s fall trout stocking

Many Pennsylvania streams were extremely low when scheduled for fall trout stocking. A “Plan B” to divert those fish to lakes or tailwater rivers nearby might result in better fishing there over a longer span of time. (Photo by Ben Moyer)

I was present on a small mountain stream when the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission’s truck arrived for the creek’s scheduled fall stocking. The air was crisp and held that intoxicating autumn tang – a beautiful October day to be outdoors. The pleasant conditions, though, accented the absence of the long line of pickups that follow a stock trout in spring. Only one vehicle trailed that load of trout upstream.
