Regional Opening Day of Trout Season

The earlier trout season for 18 southeastern Pennsylvania counties has been eliminated in 2020 due to COVID-19. The PFBC will operate under a consolidated statewide schedule for Opening Day for all counties during the 2020 trout season.

Under this revised plan, a single Statewide Opening Day of trout season will take place on April 7 (more info). Unless otherwise specified by special regulation, inland daily limits and
minimum sizes apply.
