Hopefully, we have all thanked a veteran for their service and sacrifice. Now it’s time to go beyond that and reach out to all of our honored veterans in the 49th Legislative District and surrounding areas.

Find out more about our recently launched Dog Tags Veterans Appreciation Initiative by watching this week’s Mon Valley Moment.

Reel Them In: Trout Stocking Starts Soon

The statewide opening day for trout season is Saturday, April 14.

To find out when your favorite fishing spot will be stocked with trout from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, stocking schedules are now available online and on the commission’s FishBoatPA mobile app.

Please note: Printed copies are expected to arrive in my Bentleyville district office over the next few weeks.

The commission plans to stock 3.2 million adult trout in more than 720 streams and 126 lakes open to public angling each year. These figures include approximately 2 million rainbow trout; 640,000 brown trout; and 500,000 brook trout. The average size of the trout produced for stocking is 11 inches in length.

Additionally, the commission will host its statewide Mentored Youth Trout Day on Saturday, April 7. Last year, more than 30,000 kids signed up to participate. Click here for more information about the program.
