Bad Stocking Resumes

The Fish & Boat Commission had a change of heart and is now allowing the stocking of trout from the hatchery that was sending the diseased fish.

The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) announced [October 19, 2005] that it will resume utilizing trout purchased from a commercial fish hatchery as part of its fall stocking program. The PFBC had temporarily suspended deliveries of rainbow trout from Tellico Trout Farms of Franklin, North Carolina, after several thousand fish from the hatchery died at a series of stockings in the western part of the state on October 14.

Here is a list of the fall stocking schedule.
